A Spring Entrance
This very traditional, dark and moody entry was full of beautiful oak paneling, which makes it perfect for a spring makeover. The method? The beauty of birds and flowering branches is brought inside using silk materials. The bench is softened and lightened with a cushion and pillows.
Materials and Tools:
silk dogwood branches
stems of beads and fake berries
hot glue gun
ribbon or raffia
brown pipe cleaners
- Put together three branches plus a couple of stems of beads or berries and secure them with a piece of bark-covered wire a couple of inches up from the bottom.
- Place the birds where desired and glue them into place.
- Disguise the wire with a ribbon or raffia bow. Attach the items to the railing using brown pipe cleaners in two or three spots to keep it from sliding down or falling to one side.
