Because it's fall, and because I'm obsessed with holiday decorating...I have decided to devote the next few blog posts to "Bringing the Outdoors In." I love using elements that you can find right in your backyard to warm up your home for fall! Decorating this way is simple, cost effective, and has a nice rustic appeal!!
For my first project I will take on simple twig letters! I have been seeing these images floating around the web for a while now, and have decided it's time to attempt one of my own!!
This is an image from Pottery Barn! Look how adorable this is!!
This is super cool too!! I love the bright accents of hot pink, and the use of greenery!!
Again...very cool! For hanging purposes, it looks like they have attached decorative wire to each letter!
Now that I have been inspired, it's my turn to create!!
Supplies: Twigs, Twine, and Scissors!
Break or cut your twigs to spell out your desired word! I chose FAITH....this was extra easy because there were no curves to deal with!!
Tie together each intersection with twine.
Because I did not want my twig words to look like they came straight off the set of "The Blair Witch Project," I decided to soften them with floral elements from our backyard!
I carefully tucked each floral piece under the twine....
If you use artificial floral/greenery elements, I would glue them down to your twigs! Since mine came straight from the backyard, and will eventually die, I decided to tuck them under the twine! I like the thought of using "real" floral elements because I can always change them out for a new fresh look!
I have attached a different floral element to each letter!
And here is the final look! I think it turned out fabulous! It was soo easy, and cost NOTHING!! You can't beat that!! Now, as always, I just have to find a place to hang it!!
