The past couple of weeks, the weather in Nashville has been all over the place. We have had snow, rain, freezing temperatures, warm temperatures and lots of wind.  As a result, Mother Nature provided some beautiful craft materials in the way of twigs, pine cones, leaves and acorns.

So I figured I needed to put these beautiful things to good use and cook up some creative ideas for the holidays. I have managed to make a simple white wreathWreathMain and an Advent wreath – just in time for 1. Advent on November 30th.adventmain


Here’s my latest project: a twig Christmas tree. I started with two pieces of old fence wood which I attached with screws. I sanded the pieces and white washed them by mixing a small amount of white paint with water.Next, I cut a few twigs and used Liquid Glue to attach them to the wood. Hot glue gun just didn’t do it for the thicker twigs.
A few tiny twigs and some white spray paint is all it took to create this star.

I figured these acorn caps would make cute ornaments.  I spray painted them white, silver and gold and hot glued them to the tree.

That’s all it took to make this natural, earthy and inexpensive Christmas decoration.
