It took me longer to parallel park my car than to load my car with the branches I collected from a landscape crew on an afternoon in Denver. I had no clue what I was going to do with these branches, but I couldn't pass up a stack of branches on a sidewalk that would have gone to the wood chopper.

I sorted the stash and used the branches that were small enough for my table saw. I cut the slices into 1/2" to 3/4" thickness.

The hardest part of this project was finding a surface to adhere the slices. I was leaning towards using the sliced branches to make a wreath or a centerpiece. Lucky for me I have hoarder tendencies for packaging inserts. I had a stash of thick cardboard circles.

I used a glue gun to glue the sliced branches to the cardboard form. I used two layers of sliced branches and the cardboard form held it's form. I then added a small boxwood wreath to add a punch of color and contrast.

Love the look. This version is smaller so I used it for a small tablescape I was planning for the holidays. Love it!
