This DIY branch wall hanging is a creative and modern take on a summer wreath that will look beautiful anywhere in your home.
DIY Branch Wall Hanging
Originally when I set out to come up with an idea for this DIY Summer Wreaths blog hop, I was set on doing something with a grapevine wreath. But I couldn’t come up with anything that seemed new, modern and creative.
Last week, I was cutting some branches off our overgrown rhododendrons and was left with this beautiful, thick chunk of branch. At first I wasn’t sure what to do with it – clean it off and use it as decor as-is? But once I cleaned it off and sanded it down a bit, inspiration struck. It would be the perfect modern take on a summer wreath.
Months ago, I purchased this pretty garland at Michael’s, thinking I would use it for my spring tablescape, but never did. I knew that if I cut it into strips, the cascading effect off my branch would be really pretty.

And so that’s what I did. I cut it into four equal pieces, attached them to the back of the branch using a staple gun, then hung some white twine to hang the branch from. It couldn’t have been any simpler.
But it looks so pretty!
Don’t you love a quick DIY like this that really adds something to your decor? I’m so happy with how this turned out and I hope you’ll be inspired to make something similar!
