Like most of you I have been decorating our house for Christmas. Many of my decorations are red but in my sunroom red is just too bright. So I made a twig tree for Christmas in here. Our home backs onto a woods which makes it very easy for me to get some branches and put them in a vase. If you already know me it's no surprise that I just happened to have a blue and white vase!
These crocheted snowflakes that a student gave me years ago make such a nice contrast against the dark brown branches.
My twig tree is the perfect tree for the sunroom: light airy and whimsical and it doesn't take up too much room.
Here is a view from the other direction. This room is also my office so I get to look at my twig tree and it doesn't block my view out the window as I work.
Maybe I have inspired you to find some branches and make a tree like this. It is so easy and you could hang anything on it: cookie cutters, pinecones, paper snowflakes, bows, spray it white, glue sparkles on it. There are endless possibilities.
I like my twig tree so much it may stay up after Christmas and it can be a winter twig tree!
I'd love to see what you've done to decorate in your home.
Thanks for stopping by.
