My dad once thought of the brilliant idea to decorate the livingroom with a “flying” branch. I know that sounds odd, but it’s such a simple way of decorating in a creative way. What he did was; he chopped off a nice looking (quite small) branch from one of the trees in our garden, he cleaned it off and let it dry, and then hung it up in the ceiling above the coffee table using a see-through fishing line which gives the illusion of it flying. For every season my mum decorates the flying branch with different items from that season – ie, orange decorations for autumn, feathers for Easter, and red baubles for Christmas. This along with some glass lanterns in which she puts tea lights. It’s all very pretty. I haven’t got a picture of their flying branch, but it looks something like this one below:
Using branches to decorate gives a really charming and playful impression. It also gives your room a sense of creativity and a little bit of a countryside feeling. Below are a few other ways of decorating with branches.Why splash out on a fancy wall decor, when you can make one yourself out of nature's own recources?
A really charming table decoration – branches and paper roses.
Using a branch in the kitchen instead of wall hooks - what a brilliant idea!
This ones takes a bit more skills to make, but the result is definitely worth the hard work - so pretty!
I must say this branch decoration is my favourite. I’ve got a thing for picture frames, and I think it’s so creative to use a frame this way. Branches are naturally beautiful, so why not just use them to display? Imagine if it had been an antique, swirly frame… I think this one needs testing out! I can think of a lot of empty wall spaces in my house where one of these would go just perfectly!
