Here is a festive decorative DIY inspired by some rustic trees I stumbled upon at HomeSense. Not sure who to give the credit to for the design but I thought it would be too easy not to replicate.
I have been hoarding this wood for a while waiting for some inspiration for my planter boxes.
Hindsight is always 20/20 so if you are inspired by my DIY you should certainly add some doweling to the center and use wood glue. I just used a nail gun and stacked all the pieces on top of each other, but it’s not very sturdy. I expect it’ll last a couple winters and then break, and when it breaks I’ll make some improvements.
I spray painted the edges of the branches white and sprinkled silver glitter on the edges while it was still wet so it stuck. They shimmer a little in the sun and under the lights.
I’ve gotten lots of compliments on them, hopefully its not just people being nice. I really like them when there is snow on them. Maybe some kind of topper would make them better.
