Budding Branches


So when I was browsing Domino I came across this great idea. I love earthy outside elements inside houses so when I saw this picture I knew I had to re-create it...

..And It was so EASY.

Step 1: Pick your flowers. I found mine at the Dollar Tree. I love the color and yes, just one dollar. (You may have luck at a local craft store as well.)


Step 2: Cut your branches. All I did was walk out side with scissors and cut down 4 branches



Step 3: Bust out the hot glue gun. I took all the plastic insides out of the flowers and glued them in random spots on the branches.


The FINAL product:


Sophies Tip: Don't be afraid to cut down tree branches with a steak knife if the scissors don't work, AND if the tree branches hang over your fence then technically they're yours.

I did this project in about 10-15 minutes! it was a total succes and really dressed up my bedroom. I only spent 1 dollar on the flowers, then borrowed my mom's hot glue gun and I already had an empty vase. I couldn't believe how easy, cheap, and fun/fast it was! Soph totally inspired me!
