Every year while out grabbing Christmas craft supplies, I walk over and look at some of the centerpieces they have made. I get little ideas here and there, but the ones that have frosted looking branches have always caught my attention. Of course, this year was no different. But . . . this time after looking at the prices of frosted branches I was determined to make my own. So here I am sharing with you my version of the Frosted Christmas Branch. Oh Btw this is day 5 of our 12 Days of Christmas Crafts.
What do you think? I think it turned out pretty good and you’re not going to believe how easy it was to make either.
Frosted Christmas Branch
Epsom Salt (can be purchased from Dollar Tree) see below image
White Spray Paint (Walmart has cans for a little over a $1)
Gloves (cheap plastic ones) Optional
Brush any sand and dead leaves off your branches, and spray paint them with the white paint. Let dry
Put on your gloves if you’re planning on wearing them then, spray sections of the branch with the adhesive. Sprinkle some of the Epsom Salt on the wet areas. Repeat this until your branch is covered with Epsom Salt.
Let dry and add them to your favorite centerpiece or wait for tomorrows craft because they look amazing in mine!
Frosted Christmas Branch – Final thoughts
This was one of the easiest crafts I’ve done. The cost was pennies compared to the high priced ones you can buy. I’ve seen them anywhere between $25 for 3 24″ branches to $26 for 6 branches plus 5.50 for shipping. If you made them yourself it might cost you $10 and you could make a dozen branches with the supplies you bought.
