This simple Broken Twig Tree comes together in just minutes and uses natural elements to create a beautifully striking DIY Christmas decoration!
It's chaotic! And stressful! And, all too often, unenjoyable!
The exact opposite of the silence, scarcity, and serenity of winter.
When I look outside right now, I see nothing but bare trees and broken twigs. Lots and lots of broken twigs. The perfect inspiration for this little framed tree. I collected a bucketful of sticks and twigs, and pulled out the smaller ones to use for this project. I broke them by hand and found that the natural curves, knots and imperfections of the twigs were exactly what I had in mind.
I used a hot glue gun to attach the twigs to pearly white card stock, then mounted the white to a larger olive green card stock. Of course, with the twigs behind glass, I needed to remove the back of the frame. Luckily, this one had small prongs in the back to hold the card stock in place.
A nice break from Christmas.
Thanks for taking a peek inside my Lemon Tree Dwelling!
I hope you feel right at home :)
