Fall Decor III- Using Nature Elements

Here is a way to give it a touch of nature to for decor without blowing your budget.  I had these branches in a vase , bought a long ago, but you can use branches picked up off the road or from your backyard!. Actually, the white ones you see below to the left are from my backyard and spray painted! I used for Christmas decor last yard and love them so much that they stay in my house all year long.
All  you need is burlap, am old frame ( I have tons) , a pit of scissors,  hot glue or any strong glue.

Remove the backing from the frame. Cut the burlap leaving an inch for the back
Stretch it to fit and start gluing the top and bottom , then the sides, so it will be nice and tight on the front.

Once it is ready, put  it back in the frame and start gluing the sticks

First I scattered the branches on the burlap tp see more or less where and how they could go.
Then I removed them all and start adding them one by one and figuring out the best design as I went

Ready in no time and beautiful.

Love !
