Hanging Christmas Ornament Tree Branch

Merry Christmas everyone!

I just wanted to share my last minute Christmas project which I think turned out really special and added that special touch to our Christmas lunch.  Okay, to put it simply, it looked amazing! :)



I had been inspired by this image from Remodelista ...


And yesterday while out in the garden, what was sitting in our tree but this broken off branch.  I saw it as fate, and good fortune. :)   

I quickly flicked the ants off, and dragged that beauty inside, with my excitement bubbling over.

I attached it to the ceiling with jute twine to blend in with the branch's natural quality.


Then I raided the Christmas tree for the red and silver baubles and felt snowflakes. 


The gorgeous white birdies I had picked up that very morning for half price ($2 each).


It was just a matter of hanging the ornaments randomly and so that the branch balanced evenly.


It made a real statement today and I'm so happy with how it turned out and how quick and easy it was to create. 

I'm thinking I might even leave the branch up for a while. :)

  3. This is beautiful! I think you are right, you should leave it up longer! Maybe you can change the colors to blue and silver for January :)
