12 Cool Creations Using Yardsticks

November 8, 2012

This is going to be a fun and surprising post because who knew there could be so many uses for yardsticks.  While searching around Pinterest the other day, I found a cute craft using a yardstick and the idea for this roundup began.

Thinking about how you can get your hands on some yardsticks to create projects like these? Check out local antique shops – they’ve got the best prices and most variety of colors and wear. But you could also buy them new and/or distress them by making new look old.

Okay, let’s check out these cool creations using yardsticks!
