Sometime ago, I picked up a huge box of jumbo craft sticks on clearance for a couple of dollars. You can never go wrong with having craft sticks in your stash! Name just about anything and you can probably find it made out of craft sticks. Just google "craft stick projects" and BAM!!! Any type of craft sticks project you can imagine! And they're great to craft with kids, too!
As for what I made - something simple and really not that creative. But very useful! A container of some sort - one to hold things, or a vase for flowers, or maybe a lamp for an evening glow. The best part - it's so versatile!
