Holiday Decorating with tree branches
Save those tree branches after your yard clean-up for a variety of inexpensive and clever holiday decorating ideas.
A few ideas
With a little imagination, you can create fun holiday decor using resources you already have in your own backyard. Give new life to fallen branches and trimmings.
Let nature meet your craft supplies and you’ll be surprised by all the things you can create!

Choose Your Colors
Brush off your branches and remove any loose debris. It’s time to paint.
I chose to spray paint for the ease and quickness of drying time. When spray painting, choose a well-ventilated area and lay down a protective covering. I use an inexpensive plastic painters drop cloth, and once it’s dry, I fold it up for another time. I’ve used this one four times already and it’s still holding up.
Choose your vase
Any long cylindrical vase will work for this project. Use what you have around the house, or check out second-hand stores. You’ll find an abundance of no longer wanted vases. Paint one to match your chosen color palette.
Arrange The Branches
There is no wrong way to do this. Add your colored branches to your vase. Adjust and move them until you are happy with the overall shape of your design.
Add the easter egg ornaments for the final perfect touch!
