How to make a tree limb and secure it to a wall and ceiling
GrandmasHouseDIY on Dec 19, 2017Hi Peggy they make specific ceiling anchors just for hanging things from a ceiling, then you could use fishing line so its basically invisible.Helpful Reply
SandyG on Dec 19, 2017What size of tree limb are you talking about? Always think safety first, especially in a nursery, which is why I am sure you are asking. Wherever you attach it, make sure there is studding to attach anchors too. Also, remember that it will dry out even more in the house and could cause limb breakage and it could be infested with bugs that will hatch when brought into the house. That being said, (I think my being a grandmother is showing) here is a link that has some amazing ideas for using real limbs in decorating.https://www.google.com/search?q=using+tree+limb+in+decor&rlz=1C5CHFA_enUS733US733&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwj-vPKG1pbYAhUm64MKHS8SDZ4Q_AUICigB&biw=1440&bih=826Helpful Reply
Michele Pappagallo on Dec 19, 2017I would make a frame using chicken wire and bend it to the shape you want, then cover it with paper mache. That way, it will be light weight and you won't have to worry about insects, etc like real tree limbs might have. Hang it from the ceiling using hooks that screw into the ceiling....Attach the limb with a very strong fishing line that is clear so it will not show.Helpful Reply
Jewellmartin on Dec 19, 2017Use strong fishline to hang the limb from the ceiling, with the big end of the branch cut at an angle to give the illusion the branch is growing out of the mural. Find the branch you like, then find one that is half the size. )Trust me. You will thank me later.) Matching the mural to the branch is much easier than getting the branch to match the mural, in color and in proportion. Sounds over the top good! 😇Helpful Reply
Vimarhonor on Dec 19, 2017I would use more small eyebolts screwed into the wood and attach it with a stringor twine or fishing line.Helpful Reply
