Decorated Sticks

upcycling, recyclying, bamboo stick art

So what do the jafagirls do when they find a pile of bamboo sticks? 
Why decorate them of course!
Glue √
Beads √
Yarn √
googly eyes √
paint pens √
and away we go.
Summer is here and it's time to have a bit jafagirl fun in the sun (well not too much sun). Now where is my sun block and  tequila sunrise. A girl has got to get her priorities straight, yes!

Chihuly Inspired Public Art Project

The jafagirls  have been 

making what I call the "poor woman's chihuly" inspired public art project. LOVE this project because it meets several criteria, upcyclying, having fun, and public art. This is an ongoing project and already we have hung several outside the Yellow Springs Arts Council.
 Sandi and I are working on a green one

So far we have installed four and will be adding more during the summer. 
Very simple to do and as you can see on this link there is no limit in design.

Of course I would be remiss if I did not include a link to the inspiring and fabulous work of Dale Chihuly
