Gold Twiggy Tree

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.

If like me, you have always wanted one but didn't want to pay out about £20, then keep an eye out on your walks and see what you can find !

Do share with me if you make one and I look forward to seeing what goodies you pop on yours !
