Branchlers! I've had a crafting itch lately and this was the perfect easy and fast diy to do during Axel's nap yesterday. I even got the floors swept afterwards. The hardest part (as always) has been deciding where to hang them.
a scrap of leather, wood plaque, paint, furniture tack or small nail, branch.
I collected all of these things from my craft room and the the branch I got from a tree in my backyard making it free, which I love. If you don't have a black hole called The Craft Room then you can get the plaques for $1-2 at a craft store and while you are there you can get a grab bag of leather scraps. I promise you will find other ways to use the leather.
Start by painting your plaque. While it is drying cut a piece of leather long enough to make a circle to fit around your branch. Using a hammer, pound your nail in each end of the leather to punch holes.
Put your tack through the holes to make a loop and then pound it into the plaque.
Set your branch into the loop and just like that you've made branchlers.
