I know, I know. I am so sorry. A whole week with only one post to tell you I was sick & not just playing hooky. Two Thursday night’s ago I felt it coming on & I fought it all weekend, but that next monday I started losing the battle & by Tuesday it was all over. I will spare you the icky details, but I ended up being out for the rest of the week. Then this last weekend I participated in my hometowns flea market that they throw twice a year. So between sickness & finishing up last minute projects for the sale it’s been an exhausting week & a half… But now it’s over & we can move on!
So to start us off I thought I would share this simple little rustic DIY Twig Frame!
My absolute favorite thing about this frame is that it was basically free to make! Twigs – free, scrap twine – free (a great way to recycle), twine – 40% off at Hobby Lobby! Plus if you want to make these Twig Frames even more festive you can always head over to this post I shared a few weeks back for 5 Free Fall Printables!
These DIY Twig Frames are one of the most inexpensive projects you can make this fall! Not only are they easy to create, but they can be made by children & adults alike!
What you need:
First, gather together all of your branches & break them into two different sizes of twigs. 10 that are long for the sides & 10 that are shorter for the top & bottom.
Next, start stacking the branches like lincoln logs. 2 on the bottom, 2 on the top, then on top of those layer 2 on each side. Note how they are sitting next to each other to give it a thicker look.
Then repeat the above pattern. 2 on the bottom, 2 on the top, & then 2 on each side.
Finally add 1 to the top, 1 to the bottom, & 1 to each side.
Then use some extra or leftover twine from other projects to tie all four bundles together so they stay in place for the next part.
Next, cut 3 feet of twine & criss cross it around the corner, then knot it off in the back & cut off any excess. Do this for each corner of the Twig Frame then remove the twine that was holding the twig bundles together.
Here is what the back of one of the corners looks like after criss crossing the twine in the front.
That’s it! Wasn’t that super simple & ridiculously inexpensive??? Display your DIY Twig Frame on your mantel, door, or wall for your own festive fall decor!
