In one of my stagings that I was completing for an investor, there was a beautiful fireplace, but the artwork I grabbed for the mantel didn’t seem to be working. The home had large windows and was surrounded by woods, I didn’t want the art above the fireplace to fight with the natural beauty surrounding the home.
I figured I could make something that blended in with the natural elements surrounding the home.
I had this long frame that I picked up brand new at a yard sale.
I took out the the backing and the glass so all I had was just the frame.
I found these packages of sticks at Target on Clearance a couple of years ago, and I bought them thinking I would either use them at my wedding or at least staging. But I am sure you can just find some twigs for free right in your own back yard.
And I just started hot gluing them to the inside of the frame.
It was so simple, it took about an hour to do, but I also was watching TV while I was doing it so I was trying to concentrate on the show too.
Take a look at how it came out all pulled together!
