The colors of dry nature are really beautiful, but adding an extra touch can be fun.
We actually made a similar project last year and we shared it on Instagram and discovered that you guys love the idea so much we couldn’t help but make a new version this year. This time we used pastel colors and a few extra patterns and ombre details.

We really love the idea of using nature as decoration. It’s a great way to add a warm touch to your home with elements you normally wouldn’t consider, but that look amazing.

STEPS
1. Pick up some leaves and twigs, clean them a little bit removing dust and dirt. You can use a damp cloth just clean the surface.
2. Add one or two layers of acrylic paint to the leaves and twigs. Use a toothpick to make little dots, those look really cute.
3. Let them dry for a few minutes. Use thread or yarn and the leaves and twigs one by one.
