Life Love Larson: Branch Wall Art

Branch Wall Art

Kate's room is pretty well finished up.  I am just waiting to find the right (cheap) brass chandelier that I can spray paint white and hang.  As mentioned before, we painted her room pink, so I wanted to keep the rest of the room fairly neutral and natural with a few touches of blue/gray.

I came across this post a long time ago, and knew I wanted to do something like it for above Kate's twin bed.  This is what I came up with...

Super easy.  I went outside to my front yard and selected a branch.

I pulled off the leaves and spray painted a few coats with a 99 cent can of white spray paint.

I then picked out 1 sheet of scrapbook paper and started cutting leaves (I just freehanded).  Once cut, I curved the edges at the bottom to make them look for leaf-like.

Adhere the "leaves" with a dab of hot glue.  I then tied two pieces of twine around each end of the branch and around a nail head to hang.

My daughter has not touched it once.  She is aware of what is decor and what can be played with.  She is good like that, thankfully!
