HOW TO MAKE DIY SNOW-COVERED BRANCHES

How many of you dream of a White Christmas? Lately, I think many Coloradoans are dreaming of a white Christmas. Denver has had no measurable snow in over 225 days.

This might explain why I am obsessed with my can of Santa snow spray this season. This is a super easy craft and you only need three items and one of them is free. I included a video too on how to make snow-covered branches! You got this!

HOW TO MAKE SNOW-COVERED BRANCHES

Looking out the window of my Colorado home all I see is brown. How do people in other parts of the country live without snow? Thank goodness for Christmas lights to light up the yards and front porches. I walked my yard the other day to water a few shrubs and bushes. I ended up trimming a few branches because dry (dead) branches are a crafter’s dream.

And if you are a frequent visitor to Everyday Edits you know I love to repurpose branches and greenery like this project and this one.

So I grabbed a few branches from my Christmas home office post and got to work on creating snowy branches for my holiday decor. At least my home’s interiors will have a little dusting of snow.

Sidenote: Secretly I hope that every time I mention snowy branches the snow angels will make some of the real stuff.

SUPPLIES

The best part of this craft is you only need 3 items! That’s it and the first item you should be able to round up in your yard or maybe your parents’ yard or a neighbor whose branches teeter over your side of the fence.

This is such an easy craft and the time involved is the drying time of the paint and spray snow.

STEPS

  • Place branches on cardboard or a drop cloth.
  • Spray the front of branches with primer+paint spray. Let dry.
  • Flip branches over and spray the other side. Let dry.
  • Repeat these two steps with the Santa snow spray.
  • The snow spray takes longer to dry***
  • For a more textured look repeat the snow spray a couple of times.

That’s it! Don’t worry if you miss a few spots on the branches. It will look amazing!

DIY TUTORIAL VIDEO

Here is the video I made for this DIY. This is a low-budget production so be kind! I would love it if you subscribed to my youtube channel.

You guys this is all there is to this super easy craft. I ended up putting my snowy branches in my office. It looks striking in front of the Hale Navy walls. I added a strand of berries because I love the look against the branches.

There are so many ways to incorporate snow-covered twigs and stems into the decor this time of year.

IDEAS

  • TABLESCAPES
  • TUCKED INTO FRESH (OR FAUX) EVERGREENS
  • ADD HEIGHT TO PLANTERS ON THE PORCH
  • USE AS FLORAL ARRANGEMENTS
  • CREATE A PETITE ADVENT TREE
  • PLACE TWIGS IN BETWEEN THE CHRISTMAS TREE BRANCHES

The bucket is a repurposed cylinder box from a retailer. Any guesses what was stored in this cylinder before I used it as a last-minute bucket?
