TOBACCO STICK SHUDDERS


Here are the tobacco stick shudders up close.


Primitive Tobacco Stick Shudders

These are shudders that I made out of tobacco sticks.

Since I have so many of them handy and they make for awesome primitive crafts, I've been trying to use them in all sorts of ways.

And these cute primitive shudders turned out pretty cute.
All you need to do is basically lay them out in a line, kinda find the straightest ones then cut to same size. It only takes about 5 wide.
Next, just take a piece of the cut off sections and lay them sideways on the front to kind of brace them all together. 
I had my husband take a nail gun and sink the nails way in so that they aren't seen much from the front.
On the back though, you will have to take wire cutters and cut off the rest of the nail that punctures through.
Attach a sawtooth hanger and that is it!


I went ahead though, and added some pieces of grapevine to the fronts.
It just makes it a bit more prim.


Then I painted up some stars to add a dash of color to them also.
I attached these to the fronts with craft wire.


I threaded it through the tiny gaps in between the tobacco sticks.


Here is another set that I did in a reddish color.


I tied on a bit of homespun fabric to these just to make them a bit different.



On another set that I forgot to mention. I ended up dry brushing on some black paint to the tobacco sticks.


It looked a lot cuter in person though.

Here they are up on the wall in my Booth:
