Holiday Adorned Branch DIY

Although I love classic red and green decorations for Christmas, I was ready to branch out (hah) and try something different in my bedroom this year. In addition to the purple tinsel tree that lights up my window, I hung this simple piece above my bed. Best part, it only cost me two dollars.

What you'll need:
A large branch
Embroidery floss
Ornaments (these were from the dollar store)
A hook

What you do:
Tie loop of embroidery floss on top of branch to form hanger. I used two separate color strands for added strength.

I found it easiest to hang up the branch while I was tying the ornaments on, so that I could see how the different lengths looked together.

Tie ornaments at varying lengths with floss. Trim excess.

I kept my mine pretty simple, but I'm sure you could have loads of fun adding silk flowers, glitter, and paint!

Happy Holidays!
