DIY Branch Sculpture For Your Table Top



An easy, cost free centerpiece you can add to any table top is by working with branches!

Decorate a buffet or bar top with this naturally sculptural craft!

For this project you need: 

-gather a few medium branches to work with (from your backyard or local park-look for branches laying on the ground)
-yarn (buy from craft store, Wal-mart)
-a bunch or two of fake leaves, feathers, tall grass  (buy from craft store, the Dollar Store, Wal-mart)

I walked through my local park and collected fallen branches in a garbage bag.

STEP 1
On a clean flat surface, sculpt your branches in various arrangements until you like the look of it.  

STEP 2
To keep your branch sculpture in place, use the yarn to wrap around places where your branches meet. 

Start by cutting a piece of yarn a foot long, tie one end of it around a few branches and make a knot.
Then wrap the rest around and around, and knot the end.

STEP 3
Add a few real or faux leaves, feathers, grasses....whatever you like!  Simply push the ends of each into the wrapped yarn areas.



Dress up your Thanksgiving Day buffet or dining table with a long  Branch Sculpture!  It will add an authentic natural touch to your celebration!
