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
fake birds
bark-covered wire
hot glue gun
ribbon or raffia
brown pipe cleaners

Steps:

  1. 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.
  2. Place the birds where desired and glue them into place.
  3. 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.
