Framed Branch Decor Ideas

Last fall when we were closing things up at the lake, I dragged some branches home. I’ve always wanted to make framed branch art so what better than to use branches from a place you love!

I already had a frame I’d found at a thrift store with an inside edge of about 1″ so perfect for adhering branches to. I’m so glad I finally got around to doing this because I love how it turned out! The blue wall color looks like the sky behind the trees.

For supplies you will need

Frame with 1.5″ to 2″ width or inner lip to rest branches on

Saw or Clippers Depending on size of your branches


Hot Glue

Did you notice my ancient saw! Next project - best ways to restore rusty old saw blades.


Cut branches to size and insert them in the frame, move them around until you get the look you’re after. Play around and try different sizes and combinations. When you like what you see, hot glue the ends of the branches to the inside of the frame (or use wood glue)

Once it was done, I discovered in addition to being art, it also makes a pretty great place to hang my scarves.

Or... it also works well as a jewellery hanger!

And last but not least, it could also be used to hang towels or a robe.

After all was said and done, I was really happy with how it turned out. I love having something at home to remind me of the lake during the long cold winter and it’s goes well with the room decor..

This project took longer than I expected, almost an hour by time I had cut the branches to size and played around with the options of which I'd use in what order. Once I'd worked that out, it was very simple to just glue the wood pieces in place.
