We found a fallen limb in the woodlands. It had a multitude of small branches and we knew it would be just perfect for our paint project.
We chose six different colors of acrylic paint and went to task. It was fun! Right now we are enjoying it bare but it will be used for some other things too . . . you wait and see!
There are other ways we decorate with twigs and branches. . .
like our swan atop a bookcase, made with twigs, thin branches and wire.
as an initial hanging on the wall above the doorway. M for marcia :)
or as seasonal nature art in our many nature weavings, small and large.
Directions to make them are here.
or just as itself, appreciated as a stick on his own, as in this Walking Stick branch given to us by a dear friend. It sits atop childrens books yet within easy reach for hands to handle... with care.
or as something useful, a tall thick pine branch leaned in the corner of the mudroom, used as a coat rack with many *hooks* to hang things like hats , bike helmets, jump ropes and damp jackets .(which reminds me I need to get rid of that lemony yellow wallcolor!)
If you like to decorate with nature, and love twigs, sticks, and branches, just bring in what you love and then think about how you can use it in your home.
