The Beauty of Branches and How to Decorate with Them
I have been contemplating writing about decorating with branches and twigs for a couple of weeks now. Silly blog topic …wood branch decor.
So here it is.
How to decorate with branches
Let’s discuss the Humble branch or a twig and how to add them to your everyday or seasonal decor. Infuse some nature into your space. Best thing yet these decorative sticks are free. I’m all for something for nothing!
The Easter Tree
Easter eggs are not just for hiding. The egg is used in many countries to decorate branches as a symbol of spring.
I purchased some small plastic Easter eggs from the dollar store and glued them to the branches.
Today, people all over the world create their own whimsical versions by gathering foraged branches into a vase and hanging ornaments made from dyed Easter eggs and more. Whether you have German or Swedish roots or are looking for a holiday-themed table decoration try one of these adorable takes on the trend.
Start a family tradition. My family makes memory eggs each Easter. Real eggs are blown and then decorated, telling a story or memory to share for the year. I really enjoy taking all the eggs out every Easter to display and read all the memories and stories that have been created on the eggs. It’s so sad when I drop one and it breaks!! So take note…make lots of eggs. Over the years so many get broken!
Easter trees also originate from a Swedish tradition known as Påskris, which strings all kinds of ornaments including Easter eggs and feathers on trees.
Great your guests with some fun Easter whimsy. Move your tree branch decor out side. Consider plastic eggs the wind really can blow these little eggs everywhere.
Here are some other Easter branch trees I love!
Branch Decor for Every Season
The Valentine’s Tree
Get romantic and glue some pink and red hearts on your twigs and branches.
The heart symbolizes love and giving someone a heart means to hand over one’s existence to someone.
As you can see I love to decorate my home for certain seasons. I must admit I have scaled the decor back a lot since the kids have flown the coop. You see my spring table decor here.
The Halloween Tree
For instance there was so much good stuff at the Dollar Store this Halloween I had a hard time deciding what to put on my branches. I decided to keep it simple and added some black crows.
Branches in the urn
And of course who does not have a planter with decorative sticks or branches in it for the holidays?
I reuse some of my twigs from season to season. A handful of twigs and branches can be so versatile in your decor!
There you have it a short visit, decorating with branches and twigs!
