Christmas Decor Branches Out

 

Want a fabulous and unique Christmas centerpiece that doesn’t hog all the table space?  Try this trendy alternative – just suspend a branch above the table and hang ornaments from it.

 

This works best if you don’t have a chandelier – that might get in the way.    If you do have a chandelier, you might try hanging a branch over your buffet or serving table instead. 

 

 

You might want to spray-paint the branch like they did here.  Use a metallic or high-gloss spray paint to make it sparkly.

 

 

Or just go natural with a fat branch and hang a combination of ornaments and candles attached with wire.  Use twine or strong fishing wire to suspend the branch from above.  You might want to try 3M hangers so as not to damage your ceiling.

Of course, I love the aqua table and chairs in those photos. I’ve got a bit of aqua and red in my house at Christmastime!

And…I’ve still got my lovely branches from Halloween in a vase that I like to hang ornaments on. I think I’ll do that rather than hang the branch. Is that acceptable, Decorologist?

I did that just the other day. Check it out on my blog: http://visualvacation.blogspot.com/2010/12/modern-take-on-traditional-tree.html

All inspired from Kristie’s Blue Christmas post.

Thanks!! Yeah, I’m spoiled with my mom’s ability to take on almost any DIY project and make it HGTV successful 🙂
