Christmas Decorating {Bare Branches}

I love the idea of adding sparkle to bare branches for a festive touch around the house. I do this every year to potted branches I have in my entryway and I love how it adds a little holiday season whimsy in an unexpected place. Here’s a small round up of branches dressed for Christmas!

Whether an alternative to a customary Christmas tree or simply to add more festive fun (as I do) I love the idea. What do you think?

I love Christmas branches- we used a dressed up bench as a Christmas tree on the years we are away for the holidays- very festive and fun. Great inspiration shots and looking forward to meeting you tomorrow:)

Love the idea of using branches. I have done this for the last three years. I add some small ornaments and then hole punch the corner of the greeting cards I get, add some ribbon and hang them from the branches as well.
