Branch Christmas Decor

Merry Christmas, All.

Want to decorate a room with a Christmas tree but don't have time?

How about putting a few twigs together and some cute ornaments and ending up with something like this:

Twigs decorated with Christmas ornaments

Okay, it's a poor substitute for a Christmas Tree but I like it. It's clean and simple and kinda natural looking.

 The twigs were bound together with wire and ribbon and then Mr. Crafts hung them on the curtain rod with a plastic S hook.

Then it was just a matter of putting little oraments here and there. Definitely a conversation piece, don't you think?

Need some natural gift wrapping ideas, too? Burlap and brown paper gift wrapping ideas..

What about a cute cheese ball snowman appetizer?

Wanna make some Swan Cream Puffs? These are a show stopper, people. A show stopper... and, of course, they're cream puffs so they taste fabulous.

Merry Christmas!

  1. I love the tree! I like the sparseness against all the white with just a touch of red. The swans are adorable!

  2. I love this idea. I'm pinning it for next year! I'd like one in the art studio.


So happy you came to visit today. Everyone is so busy but if you would like to leave a note for me, I would love it!!
