How do you get ideas to make things?
In my case sometimes things just happens. My oldest son was trying to camouflage his Christmas present for his sister and used these stiks that I use to stir paint and duckt tape
And with no better use for them after she opend her gift, I used them as place mats:)
Of course I made some more so here how it was done.
Simple and easy, place the sticks side by side and tape them together.
