So I have been collecting vintage yardsticks for a few months now. I had no clue what I would do with them all. I really see a theme with my hoarding. I just buy what I like and I figure I will eventually find a use for it. I have been busy this summer trying to go through some of my “stock”. I have been wanting a large number 4 on a wall in my house. I knew I could cut it out of wood, but I really wanted something different. One morning a woke up with a crazy idea on how to use those yardsticks. They were the perfect size for a number 4.
I started by laying them out on the table. Okay I know it looks like a giant H, but just wait. I thought “let’s make this easy”. I decided to cut the yardsticks on the left side in half. This would make the top left side of the number 4 and the center.
Notice the cup of coffee. That really is the most important item needed in any craft room 🙂
Once it dried, I removed the blue tape and I had a nice solid number 4.
I will add some little hooks on back and it will be ready to hang. I am working on a collage wall for my family room. I am pretty sure it will be going there, but honestly I really never know. I will add a few more pictures when that wall is done, if ever!
Thanks for looking!
