DIY-Tree branch wall decor

The last post had the first sun burst mirror that I tried doing. This one is a variation. This could easily pass on for an art from waste material. I go on a walk every evening and during the fall season I saw a lot of twigs on the road and I loved the size and the texture of the twigs. I wanted to do something similar to the Sun burst mirror and make a wall art

Things needed:

1. Twigs. You could just collect the fallen ones from the streets or parks
2.hot glue
3.few flowers for decorative purpose (optional)

Just make a design in any shape that you like and start sticking the twigs together. I made it in the sun burst form. Then stick the flowers to the twigs and hang it. Beautiful wall piece is ready.

Total cost : 0$ !
