Kelly will be the first one to tell you that I am pretty much obsessed with anything made from wood. It’s really hard for me to branch out and buy furniture made from anything else. It’s natural beauty just blows me away which is why I was especially excited about this week’s three posts. This week we used pieces of cut cedar to 1) create an eye-catching cakestand, 2) put together rustic centerpieces and 3) make bases for event signage. There are so many different things that can be done with wood rounds and the styles that can center around it go on and on.
WHERE TO BUY:
We recommend tracking down your own wood to use, mainly because it’s free, and well, we love anything that is free. If you aren’t lucky enough to know people in the Texas Hill Country I would suggest contacting landscaping companies or tree cutting services to see if you can take their remnants. You might be doing them a favor too! You can also check out your local Craigslist; people give away all kinds of things. As far as cutting the wood goes, we used a chainsaw but if you aren’t comfortable with this HAVE A PROFESSIONAL DO THIS. Your centerpiece is not worth a missing finger. :) Happy (and safe) crafting, friends.
