Start this décor project by going for a walk. Go into your back yard, into a park or just for a walk around the block, keeping your eye out for pieces of wood on the ground. Look for interesting textures and shapes in branches. Sticks that have interesting angles or take unexpected turns are what you want-something that's going to create some visual intrigue.
Wishbones, curls and right angles can be among the pieces that'll look great. Long, strong branches work best, but go for a variety of lengths. Of course, keep in mind where you're going to be putting them in your home.
