Decorate a Frame with Twigs
Glue rows of twigs on a frame for a cool effect
  • Acorn caps or full acorns
  • Gardening-Shears
  • Tacky Glue
  • Picture frame with flat surfaces
  • Twigs
Step 1
Gather twigs on a nature walk

Choose twigs that have bark that is securely attached, not starting to chip or peel off in any way.

You can choose twigs that are generally the same width, or mix it up.

Cut the twigs to approximately the same length with gardening shears.

Step 2
Put a thin line of glue on each twig

Tacky Glue works great and dries clear.

Step 3
Glue from the corners to ensure the twigs line up
Step 4
Glue as you have time

You don't have to complete this project all at one time. It can be like a puzzle where you do a little bit each day.

Step 5
You can glue a few acorns in the corner for some extra decoration
