I did this on one of my walls in my bedroom. All you have to do is gather branches from your yard (preferably ones with tons of little branches on it), strip them from any leaves (OR BUGS! GROSS!), then find a sturdy spot in it to put a small nail. Then get clothespins in order to hang the pictures. I actually wish I had more polaroids because this would look SUPER CUTE if it was a polaroid collage. Oh well.

Hope you enjoy!

That's a great idea.  It has a lot of potential to theme it seasonally.  Hmmm.
Did you use regular size clothespins, or smaller ones?

They're regular sized clothespins....smal ler ones wouldn't fit over the branches. Smiley

I like that idea....but I think I am going to paint them different colors, and put them on my kids walls.  My daughter is all the time drawing me pictures....and now I can display them somehwere else besides the fridge!! 

Thanks for the great idea!!

it's funny that you say that, because it was actually inspired by something i saw in potterybarn!! haha it was a HUGE branch that was the headboard of a bed. i couldn't find a branch that big though so i thought up this instead! Smiley
