Christmas Crafting Part 2

And now another Christmas craft!

I wanted to make a craft that combined natural elements with some bling :)

I decided I wanted to use some branches but we had trimmed our trees about a month ago and didn't save any of the wood. However, on a walk with James and Penny in the park, I saw some branches had fallen so we picked some up (and let Penny have a small one). Problem solved! James cut them into the lengths I requested and I got to work. I hot glued the branches together for a little more stability, and wrapped twine around them. I then just used some small ornaments in white and silver - most I already had on hand but I also bought a small pack from Hob Lob for $3. I hung it in front of some curtains and I was pleasantly surprised by how it turned out. Not bad for $3 total.
