My sweet Dad took the time to perfectly locate and trim up great size branches from not one, but THREE different local trees: oak, manzanita, and apple. Isn't he the BEST?!
I was so thrilled!
I still have yet to use them all; I keep meaning to cover a few vases and pillar candles in short branches, as shown here.
And how pretty and simplistic is this?!
I sprayed the branches with a metallic bronze glitter spray paint to give a subtle sparkle, per this idea here.
