Got Wood?

I live out in the country where it is an understatement to say that we have a great deal of trees. Just recently, we cut down most of the trees, that have grown on our six acres for over fifty years, to let in more sunlight and protect our house from old trees falling on it. Most of the trees were taken to factories; however, we are still left with a lot of extra wood. What to do with it all, besides making fires? Craft with it, of course!
These painted branch slices make wonderful wall art! I just love looking at them! They make me happy! :)
You can use any acrylic paint for these, but make sure that your wood is completely dry before you use it or it will damage your walls. 

These glow in the dark seats are so much fun to use around a camp fire! Their bright colors turn an ordinary bon fire into a party. :)
You can find inexpensive glow-in-the-dark paint for these at Home Depot.
Yep, this is the art I'm creating with my wood! :) Enjoy making your own and share your creations with us!
