Two jazzy branches for the holiday Day 7 of 12 Days of Holiday Inspiration

 Hello hello!
I don't know about you, but I'm all about being cheap and fabulous.  I know I sound crazy but I got two ideas that explain this perfectly.
  In a nutshell I'm just talking about gathering old dried up branches and spray painting them.  Easy, cheap and they look so cool.  This one was sprayed with Rust-oleum "Gold Metallic" and then topped with a coat of their "Gold Glitter" spray.

 This one branch takes a little bit more work but just look how it shines.
 This branch was sprayed with white paint and then wrapped with lights.
Tip:  The lights stick out from the wire so to get a more "branchy" look I wrapped the cord around the lights so they lye flat on the branch (see the picture below).

 I love dead branches and I hope you do too now.
Now to see what amazing crafts the other "Inspiration Crew" gals have.

 I think you know by now but don't forget about the GIVEAWAY!

I can hardly wait to visit your blog each time cuz I know that I am going to find yet another amazingly creative piece!

You totally rock Lalo! I can just imagine what your house must look like for the holidays...no corner left untouched! You really do need to post a panoramic view of your fully decorated abode!

This is fabulous! So creative! What I love best again though, is that you have used elements that are right outside your door...pine cones, tree branches and Voila - another spectacular display!

Gorgeous!!!
