Have you thought of using branches for a cheap home accessory? Especially if you can grab some from your yard this time of year. I’ve been known to ask tree trimmers if I can take some off their hands. Lucky you if you have a magnolia tree or anything with blossoms. Really, any bush or tree branch can look cool and organic.
Branches As A Cheap Home Accessory
Tessa from Nine and Sixteen said of these branches: “Welcoming the unofficial start of summer with a dramatic arrangement of weeds.” Incidentally, many of these photos came from people I recommend you follow on Instagram.
A couple of simple twigs in a glass vase…
Sparse branches in a black jug balance the tree on the other side.
I’ve used those dark red leaves on the mantel before too. (Cut with approval from my clients–I carry clippers in my car).
I just used three branches in a narrow vase here.
This is a great look on the organic table with black accents.
These twigs are from the grocery store and I added a realistic faux fern spray in a vintage crock.
Lauren Liess is the queen of using branches. I’m looking forward to her book coming out in the Fall.
I got these from a landscaper trimming a tree.
I hope this gives you some ideas for using branches as a cheap home accessory. Hopefully, you can find some for free.
We are having really warm weather…well in the ’70s in San Francisco. Nice weather to get out and walk! How is it where you are?
