Yardstick Ruler Craft Ideas



Are you going to Chapel Market?  I am and I am so excited!  I am sharing a booth with my partner in crime – the ever amazing KariAnne of Thistlewood Farms!  Even if you don’t come by to make any purchases, we will be sure to entertain you!  We will be inside the chapel, but there will be a lot of fun vendors outside in the tents as well! Dana and I shipped off a bunch of boxes the other day filled with maple syrup.  Fingers crossed, prayers and good juju that it all gets there in one piece would be appreciated!  We are figuring this all out one step at a time and hopefully we have figured out how to ship syrup in bulk! We also put our new workshop to use (sharing soon!) and pulled together some projects that we sent.  I picked up  a bunch of vintage yardsticks at Brimfield last month and we put them to good use…





A sled – so hard to sell to sell this one!



Some fun little trees…



A few colorful frames…




And of course, my favorite yardstick arrows…




If time allows, we are going to try and finish a few ornaments and I will bring them in my suitcase!  All of them were made using a chop saw or a bandsaw to make the cuts and then attached to the base with a mix of different strong glues.  Then I sanded down the edges smooth and added  dark wax. If you come, please stop by and introduce yourself!  I would love to meet you! Now I am off to figure out what the heck I am going to wear!

  1. I love yardsticks and rulers. I really didn’t know I did, until we found an old one in a box of ancient books in our attic! It’s a ruler from a now-defunct business in our little town, and it’s well over 50 years old.

    How I wish I could get to Alabama this weekend!! Too many things, too little time . . . I want some of your maple syrup! 🙂

  2. Love the sleigh and the little trees do you have instuctions on how to do them would love to make some exspecially the trees their really cute. good ideas !!

  3. If you come home with any yardstick arrows I would gladly purchase from you. SERIOUSLY. I have been looking for these for some time. I would love 2 each pointing right and left (so the writing on the stick is always in the correct position. I’d love to come to the sale and see Karianne again as we met at Becoming Conf in August. BUT I cannot. Please consider this an order.

  4. Laura,
    You always have such awesome projects! Hope you ladies have a great show at Chapel. I talked my sweet hubby into taking me to the City Farmhouse Barn show last weekend. I must say it was an amazing show and worth the trip from Virginia. I never saw KariAnne there but I did meet Linda from Coastal Charm who had a booth and said she would be doing the Chapel Market as well.

  5. I live in central PA!! But I love the yardstick clipboards – will you be selling them online since I can’t make it to Chapel Market????

  6. I have just noticed your yardstick arrows and clipboards. Several of the items that you showed on line have yardsticks with Holliday, TX and Wichita Falls, TX advertised on them. Would you happen to have any yardsticks from Iowa Park, TX . I was born and raised in that part of the TX and would like to purchase some of those items.
    I won’t be able to attend the Chapel Mkt. so if you would contact me I would appreciate it.

  7. Pay a visit to my site Craft Knife for a peek at our really weird
    handmade homeschool lifestyle my etsy shop Pumpkin+Bear for a really
    odd variety of rainbow-themed beeswax pretties and my Google

    well-known cat who lives in my neighborhood.
