Paint Stir Stick Projects

Paint sticks come free when you purchase a gallon or a 5-gallon bucket of paint at any home improvement store.  If you can’t grab some for free you can always purchase 1/2″ x 2 strips of pine in the lumbar section, as well, which is comparable to the 5-gallon stir sticks you get at the paint counter.  If you want them in large quantity you can purchase them for about $.45 each from here.  I have done quite a few fun projects with these little strips of wood.  Click through the slideshow to see all the projects.

Be the Good in the World Sign

Creating a paint stick pallet I made a "Be Good in the World" sign inspired by a Ghandi quote.  It is a great reminder to be the light in this world.
