When you think of popsicle stick crafts, you probably don’t think of chic decor projects.  Well, think again!  At The Cheese Thief, crafty mastermind Rena steamed and bent the wooden sticks, allowing them to slide into the vase and form various patterns.  She experimented with a couple of different arrangements, but my favorite is this helix design.  Her blog post even includes a video showing the process of bending the popsicle sticks!  [how to make a popsicle stick helix vase]
