I FOUND THIS TREE BRANCH IN THE FIREWOOD PILE , JUST HAD TO BRING IT ON INSIDE!
Hi there, were down to the nitty gritty, Christmas is almost here! Today I wandered out to the fire pit and my daughter and friends gathered some firewood and I came across this branch. Hmmm I thought I could turn this into a hat and coat tree, I could use it to hang baskets, I could decorate it for the holidays! My daughter does not like when I swipe wood she's going to use for the fire pit, maybe she wont notice shhhh. OK this is what I came up with.....
The first thing I did was wipe it down with some spicy wax that I had from my scented wax melts, then I took some bathroom adhesive caulking and rubbed some on to look like snow . And last I took some artificial snow and added it onto the adhesive and a quick spray of Spray starch on the snow.
I hung a basket filled with pinecones....
Santa hangs on a rope of holly leaves...
I hung a lollipop strand with some tiny scissors for treats for the little ones so they can just cut one off the strip!
A great place to hang your winter hat! Don't laugh I know I am in Florida but it does get down in the low 30's Brrrrrrr!
I can even put thumbtacks in it for additional hanging
I can't wait to decorate it for the holidays, I have big plans for this adopted branch. I'll have to keep my eye on it so it does not go to the fire wood pile again! I surely don't like venturing into the woods due to all the wildlife meaning bears, snakes, and panthers oh my! The deer are so fun to watch though. Thanks for stopping by today!
You can find me at any of these fun linky parties!

Welcome...hope I find everyone enjoying everything Fall has to offer...as I see it I think that it may be everyones very favorite season. Here in Florida we have no changing leaves or Acorns but we do have some magnificent pinecones and a recent discovery of The Florida paper tree. My daughter and her friends went to the woods to gather some wood for the outdoor fire pit and as I was passing the wagon of cut logs I noticed they resembled birch tree a bit so I went and checked it out better. One of the logs was peeling apart oh I thought this is very cool so I grabbed a few logs and brought them on in the house I peeled one apart.
I thought I would try a couple of things first I covered a old floor board entirely. I used wood glue.
So I crafted this lodge sign just using some stencils and paint and attached these two?, sorry they look like a type of pine cone they were interesting so I gathered some.
Then I thought I would peel off some big enough pieces to wrap around just a typica…
Hello there......looking for a wonderful inexpensive Holiday Craft?? I have just the thing to gather the whole family around the table, serve a little hot cocoa and some cookies and it's a party! This is all you will need to get this party started......
Some basic white paper, scissors, glitter and some glue. The glue you will want to paint the finished snowflakes with but we did add a little water to it. I am so a magazine saver, this is an old one "Martha Stewart Kids", If you follow the numbered steps and besure to get a good fold the results areendless.
It is true no two snowflakes are a like! Once you get a "shovel" full its time to bring them to the glitter box, just a shallow box to sprinkle glitter, before that just a couple brushes of glue which we did in a different box then the glitter.
This is just one cut but once you follow steps 1-5 you can make your own cuts !
