Things to remember
Decorating your home with branches from your yard or neighborhood is inexpensive and simple. When you top it with a sleek glass vase, it becomes a modern yet natural décor.
Arrange the branches in large glass vases. Take the heaviest, largest piece and put it in the vase. It will form a visual source for the arrangement. You can then add the simpler, smaller branches.
Follow the arrangement line and adjust the twigs to create an artistic and balanced setup. If you have smaller or compact appliances like swings, you can keep them beside the arrangement. Don’t forget to put swing covers on them.
