winter branches.

i know many of you might be slightly crafted out from all of the holiday projects, but this is a super easy craft with big effect. my mum taught me how to make these gorgeous winter branches.

tissue paper


green branches (pine, balsam, spruce, cedar…)

white glue



1. cut the tissue paper into tiny pieces. keep in a container.

2. place branches in chosen vase or basket.

3. add glue generously to branches and needles, sprinkle cut tissue paper onto wet glue. add glitter as desired to wet glue. ensure the tissue paper is evenly spread amongst your branches creating a realistic snowy effect. that’s it.

    Your branches look so pretty and sparkly. Great idea making your own snow, it works so perfectly and if a person needs some snow in a hurry it’s great way to make it. We live out from a town where I can buy many crafting supplies so I try to learn to make as much of my own as I can. Saves lots of time, gas and money and I learn alot. I’ll have to make some of this.
    Are you English? I notice you said your Mum taught you how to make these branches. Do you live in England or Canada? Sorry if I’m being too nosy. I always wanted to visit England, my paternal ancestors are from there. Happy days and Happy New Year
