One of the crappy things about working freelance is your paycheck may sometimes be at the mercy of people less organized than you. Case in point, I was asked to make an arrangement out of huge branches painted white. Unfortunately the person went MIA and now I have a small snow white forest in my craft area. But not being deterred (and not particularly feeling like lugging them all outside), I decided to use them as decor in my house. So here is my DIY wall art, that took no time or money at all. Full how-to after the jump. Allons-y!
What You’ll Need:
Tissue paper (since this was spur of the moment I used the colors I had on hand)
Green pipe cleaners
Using a couple of different templates for making different types of tissue paper flowers, I halved the size because I wanted smaller flowers.
Out of all the branches I had, the one I used had the most smaller branches coming off to make it look like a real tree so I went with that.
I attached the tissue paper flowers with green pipe cleaners to the branches. I wanted it to look like spring so I added them sporadically and the green pipe cleaners look like leaves.
And there you have it! When life gives you lemons…add ice, vodka, and go make something!
