I just had to make this wooden stick and rope photo collage. It speaks to my soul… I love adding a touch of nature in my home, and this photo collage brings nature right in my cabin.
Two pieces of wooden sticks ( Any length you choose, but both should be the same length.)
Pieces of rope- about 2-3 feet long (I used 9 pieces)
Select your two pieces of wooden sticks. Dried sticks are better for this project, but green sticks can work too.
Clean them up nicely with a brush to remove all dust and dirt. This is not a must, but you can apply some varnish to give them a glossy look. I used a quick-dry polyurethane spray. If you choose to do this step, let the finishing dry properly before doing anything further with this project.
Lay out the pieces of sticks beside each other, and get your rope ready for attaching.
Tie one piece of rope onto one piece of wood stick. Then tie the other end of the same piece of rope onto the other stick right above. Follow the example in the photos below.
Continue with each piece of rope until you have reached your desired amount. I used eight pieces of rope.
Tie another piece of rope onto both ends of the wooden stick that you choose to be at the top of the collage. This will be used to hang your collage.
Now it is time to organise and display your photos on your wooden stick and rope collage. I use clothespins to attach my photos to the rope. And I like adding some flowers and greenery to make it pretty.
Please let me know if you try this project 🙂
