Fall Branch Artwork

My favorite part of my simple fall buffet table was the fall branch art.  I used the silver plates from previous tables and created this graphic statement.  Here is what you’ll need:

  • branches
  • plates {or frames, scrap wood, whatever you have on hand}
  • scrap fabric
  • hot glue gun
  • glue dots
  • saw

I started by scouring my backyard for branches.  Once I realized we don’t live in a forest, I went over to the one foresty tree in our yard and found two bottom branches that would be the perfect thickness for my project.  I took a hand saw and cut them off.

Then I took the branches to the garage and got the miter saw ready to cut.  I just eyeballed the thickness and cut a ton of tiny pieces.

I brought all of my little branch pieces back inside and laid them out.  Then I took some scrap burnt orange linen fabric I had on hand that I thought would be perfect for fall.  I roughly cut the fabric to the shape of each plate and centered them.

I used glue dots on the back to adhere them to the plates.  That way I can remove the fabric and reuse the plates if I want.

Then I laid out the wood letters and hot glued them onto the fabric.

Simple as that.  I love the rustic wood and the pop of warm color they bring to the buffet.

 

 

The best  part is the whole project was free!
