Twig Vases for the Holiday!

Hi y’all.

I should be writing a paper tonight, but I have something to do in 20 minutes. Clearly I can’t effectively get in “the zone” and write anything useful for that in 20 minutes, so here I am cranking out a blog! It’s the only writing I really want to do anyways…!

During Thanksgiving break, I was anxious to bring some Christmas cheer into my home.

Materials: (Makes 1 vase)
Twigs
White paint
Paintbrush you don’t care about
Vase
Hot Glue Gun
Ribbon

1. Collect twigs and cut to appropriate size.

2. Paint sticks white! I used acrylic paint and watered it down. A light coat keeps it looking rustic! Justin also helped me with branch cutters even out the ends.

3. Start gluing your sticks to the vase! It will be easiest to start with bigger, straighter, ones and fill in the gaps later with thinner twigs. A vase with straight sides will also work best.

4. Tie a ribbon to complete!

5. We filled them with fake poinsettias and gold branches. Glitter everywhere, y’all. So worth it.
