A mother-nature-approved wall collage

wall collage 1

Create a dramatic wall collage by making your own signature style frames with natural elements.

While you are on your next nature walk, gather small tree branches that have fallen. There are so many crafts that can be done with them.

Here are a few ideas to get you started, but first…supplies:

Several tree limbs that are similar in diameter for each frame

Liquid Nails or a hot glue gun

Two to four 1 inch wood screws for each frame (depending on your branch size)

A brad nail gun (if you have one but not necessary)

Twine or D rings for hanging

Drill

If you are unable to break the branches by hand, use a miter saw to cut them at your desired length. The featured frames will mostly have stacked branch sides as you see above.

Lay the branches out in the shapes you desire. Glue with a hot glue gun to keep the limbs in place until you are ready to nail or screw the outer layer together. If you have a brad nailer, go ahead and use a dollop of liquid nails and shoot a nail into each corner to attach the branches.

Using wood screws will keep these frames together too. Plus they will give you a simple way to hang them. Here’s how:

By leaving space at the neck of the wood screw at all four backside corners, twine can be wrapped on two for hanging.

This is where your imagination can run wild. Keep them plain or add some fun details.

For a completely different look – attach several branches horizontally to scrap paneling.

Use a small clothespin to display a photo on the front side.
