Simple Winter Solstice project...completed

Don't you love this time of year?  There's nothing like living your daily life with a bit of holiday season scurry thrown in for good measure!

How about a picture first?

This was simple and fun to do.  First, I went shopping in my backyard for a branch.  I have to report that I was disappointed in the selection out there.  I found one that I was pretty happy with, and painted it with a watered down white acrylic paint. 

After it dried, I took some Fast Grab tacky glue and stuck these small clear beads along the branch.

I used Diamond Stickles here and there. The finishing touch was this white fuzzy garland that I wound around the branch and secured with more tacky glue. 

This is my red half bathroom.  I love how it pops against the wall color and plays nicely with the other  accessories.

My supervisor seems to approve...

I'm "branching out" and linking up here...

  1. I love your idea, Christine, and it sounds like your cute little pup does, too! I've been wanting to do something with branches too, but not sure what. Thanks for the inspiration! Oh, you always seem to be up on all of the latest supplies out there (and I am always the last to learn about them!), so now I need to look for that fast drying glue!!

  2. Oh this is so pretty! I just love the combination of things you used and it's perfect for your altered bottle. I love it when our supervisors approve!

  3. I love the colors!! Love the red and white together! Very pretty! And cute puppy!

  4. oooo... what a cool different look! Loving the bottle as well! Nicely done!


  5. So festive! Love that you "shopped" for the branch in your backyard ;)

  6. oooo... what a cool different look! Loving the bottle as well! Nicely done!



I won't deny it, I love comments! Thanks...
