Ever since I saw some of the rustic wood trees that have been appearing around the blogosphere, I wanted to make my own version of one. Hubby recently did some yard work, and he saved a bunch of mesquite branches for me--yea! Right away, I knew I had the perfect materials for a twig Christmas tree.
This is such an easy and frugal project, and it only took some twigs and glue. It's also a pretty quick craft--after the glue dries, you have a rustic tree to display.
First, cut the branches so that you have some small, medium and large branches. You also need one thick branch for the tree trunk. Then, just arrange them until you get the right look.
