I wanted a pop of color for the home tour, and I wanted someting with a natural element, but after shopping around,but I was not about to break the bank on a $30 or $40 fruited branch.
For. A. single. branch. Yikes!
I decided to tackle making my own.
It was way easier than I thought and way under $15 for two branches!
I just needed a few branches. I snuck over to my neighbor’s brush pile and picked out the ones with the best shape ans size I wanted. I did not look like a weirdo at all. Picking through my neighbors discaard brush pile. At 10 am in the morning. Not at all.
Besides, they should be used to it by now,I already scope out their garbage on a regular basis.In fact, sometimes they call me now before they throw stuff out.
I did have to hold them in place for a minute or so until the hot glue set. I only burned myself 3 times. It’s a proud day when you can walk away from a crafting session with only minor injuries.
I used the smallest berries for the top and the largest on the bottom like a real branch would grow.
I still have fruit pieces left over to use on another project too!
