Icy Christmas Branches!

Happy Wednesday!
My kiddos and I have been under the weather these last 5 days and did not have the strength to do anything. I did a lot of resting. : )

Today, I have a really inexpensive way to spruce up your Christmas decor.

Materials you will need:
White spray paint
Epsom salt fine
Spray adhesive

Spray paint your branches and let dry. 
Next, you spray the adhesive in small section and by the handful add Epsom salt. Let branches dry over night.
Take foam and moss and insert into a vase or anything you want your branches to go into.
Here it is all done. I was going to add ornaments or small garland, but I love the icy look better. 
I love how these turned out and most importantly this project only cost me $4 dollars. Love it and I also LOVE your sweet comments. Drop me a line. Have a great week.


Spray paint your branches and let dry.
