Yard sticks ~ what in the world?

Hi guys~
A sweet friend gave me this bunch of yard sticks  to make something "cool".
She just knew I was up for the challenge.  This is not an original idea, I'm sure you have seen them around, but this is my version:):)

Yes hubby helped~
back in the day (craftin' day, that is) we did lots of crafting together. He is very handy:):) to have around:) He cut and whipped these 6 point stars together in no time:)
The large ones took 3 yard sticks cut in half, giving six pieces to complete the star.
That is an Indiana pine-cone, too.
This one is named ~ Angelia

I used stuff I had, didn't buy a thing:)
This one is named ~ Marcela

This one is done primative style:)
This one is named~ Lea
I used some Maya Road, Prima, and Darkroom Door on the clusters. 

Another primitive style~
This one is named~ Connie Kay  {wait,that's my name:):)}
 and these two,  took two yard sticks cut into thirds, making the six pieces for the star.
These are still waiting on their names:):)

Thanks for stopping by~
see ya soon:)
