I wasn't sure exactly where to post this project, so feel free to move it.  This is a project that my aunt created which I thought was very cool.  She wrapped sticks with different types of yarn and put them together in a vase to make a bouquet.  She's made several different ones - this is her largest, at about 6ft tall with a couple dozen sticks.  It's an easy project, but very time-consuming.  Wrapping sticks that have branches in them, in particular, takes a long time.  The bright colors don't come across as well in the photo as I would like.  I'm not sure where my aunt got the idea.  I think it might have been her own, but if anyone has seen something like this already out there, please let me know.

The full bouquet.

This is fantastic!  I think I will use this technique for my Christmas tree next year!

Stunning! And a great way to liberate novelty yarn.

It seems that different people have an idea of what I am, and what I should be. And then there's me.

This is totally not what I was expecting when I saw the title, but this is really neat!  I've never seen anything like it.

omg!
What a great Idea.... I am into the "wilderness" look in my house. That is a great idea.  I will have to do some greys and blues to match my bedroom.

I really encourage everyone to do this project!  It turns out so cool and hardly any skill is required.  Thank you all for the wonderful comments, I'm sure my aunt will be happy to hear how much people like her idea!
