Hi blogging friends,
As Halloween approaches, I wanted to share with you my Manzanita branch centerpiece. It's perfect to add height to any tablescape or side table.
I used a Longaberger Halloween basket as the base. I wanted a neutral color and thought the gray & white basket was perfect. The Manzanita branch was mounted to a piece of wood and set into the round basket.
The top was then covered with Spanish moss. Seed lights were wrapped around the branches to add a mysterious twinkle. Keeping with my Edgar Allan Poe theme I have a few perched crows.
I also added a "creepy" spiderweb tie-on with a dangling spider.
So simple and cute to make! You can be creative and use a piece of driftwood or grab a branch from your backyard. If you like the look of the Manzanita branch, please see my friend Grace and she will create something special for you. I plan to change mine for the seasons. Sparkly bulbs for Christmas, little eggs with a nest for spring, butterflies for summer ... you get the idea.
Thank you for stopping by!
