Yesterday we were finally blessed with a stunningly clear, sunny, and beautiful fall day.
After a record amount of rainfall in the past month it was such a treat.
It reminded me of all the things that I love about Fall.
And taking family walks through the forest around our house is one of the things I love to do in the Fall.
My youngest son and I recently collected some twigs on a walk around the neighbourhood forest area…
Perfect for this quick and easy project.
Today I can’t wait to show you how to make your these easy DIY Twig Letters for yourself.
And I think that miniature versions of these would be adorable as place cards on your Thanksgiving table.
For the base of this I started with a white wooden letter that I had picked up at Michael’s Craft store…
After we cut and collected all the twigs, I brought my wooden letter into the garage to help me cut the twigs down to size so that they would cover the letter. I placed them loosely on the letter as I went so as to make sure that I had enough for good coverage, overlapping them in some spots.
Then I moved the whole production inside to a much warmer work area in my craft room and then used my hot glue gun to attach them to the wooden letter.
It didn’t take very long…and once it was all glued with some overlapping twigs, you really don’t notice the white letter underneath. It seems perfect for Fall. I love how it looks against our late fall Mantel – I will be back tomorrow to show you some more of that.
Want to remember this?
