DIY Branch Centerpiece

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!

What a DELIGHT this is and being able to change it for the seasons, I LOVE the Halloween theme. I frightened myself so I couldn't sleep for weeks after reading an Edgar Allan Poe book when young, so I think this is just the thing. LOVE it.
