Easy Holiday Decor: Branches!

The simplest holiday decor you can ever do is laying in your yard, or someone else's... Branches! These natural beauties make for the easiest holiday decor that anyone can do!
Gather as many or a little as you can find and you can create a simple yet stunning centerpiece in your home. Place a few in a tall vase, and voila! Leave them bare, or add a few ornaments. This simple arrangement can be a fabulous alternative to a traditional Christmas tree if you don't have the space.
Spend a little time spray painting the branches you collect. Any color, or metallic can really brighten up the look! Ornaments, stockings, garlands, and even jewels can find a home for the holidays on your branches. Just look at a few of these creative and simple ways to display branches.
Several layers of red paint will transform your branches into a beautifully modern way to decorate.  I love the contrast of the birds on this display!

A few larger branches make for a great tree alternative.... 

... Or just a branch or two can be stunningly simplistic! 

Branches give a great opportunity to creatively display your holiday cards. 

Just some fishing wire and nails can really transform your space!  Just be sure it's secure!
No fireplace? No problem! Hang your stockings with care on a branch! 
Next time you're out and about, take notice of just how many branches are out there. You can really do a lot with just a one or two. The possibilities are endless!
