Paint Bare Branches
Remove any leaves, then place branches on a drop cloth and evenly coat all sides with white spray paint. While paint dries, tear lengths of newspaper.
Cover Branches With Newsprint
Brush decoupage glue onto lengths of torn newspaper (Image 1). Wrap glued paper along branches and press into place (Image 2). Repeat until branches are entirely covered, then arrange them in a tall narrow vase to dry. Tip: Decoupage just a few or cover all the branches depending on desired look for finished centerpiece. Newspaper can also be antiqued using wood stain for an aged appearance.
Cut Card Stock
Cut orange and yellow card stock into five to seven 2" x 4" pieces. Cut same number of 2 1/2" x 4 1/2" black card stock pieces.
