I love twiggy trees and have done for some time now but didn't want to spend out to buy one.
We were in Scotland for a long weekend recently and out on a walk, I saw the perfect little twiggy tree, so I popped it in the car and drove it all the way home !
I have recently moved house however and I think it might still be in my Parents garage, so... when I was walking out of college the other night (I am doing an evening Beginners SLR Camera Course) I saw one on the ground and it looked so cute still having some little fir cones attached.
So, I picked it up and brought it home.
I spent a little time thinking about what I was going to do with it and remembered I had recently picked up some Gold spray paint so 'wahoooo let's spray it gold' came to mind !
I probably didn't do it right, I just went outside and sprayed it. I didn't prep it or anything - are you supposed to ?
Anyway I am super happy with how it turned out. I let it dry for a few hours outside then popped it in a nice white pot I have from Ikea.
I added some Oasis to the pot and then covered it with some white tissue paper.
OOh it's so cute and I can't wait for Easter so I can cover it with lots of lovely eggs and decorations but I actually love it's little place in our flat and it might just stay out and change with the seasons.
Do share with me if you make one and I look forward to seeing what goodies you pop on yours !
