Why we love it: Mirrors, frames, artwork... branch out from the usual suspects hanging over the sofa! This simple showpiece makes a striking statement while perfectly anchoring a big, cozy couch in an open living space.
What you need: Branch; white muslin strips; scissors; 1 string of clear lights; hammer; measuring tape; carpenter’s level; pencil; 2 brass c-hooks; and fishing line.
How to make it: Remove any soil residue from the branch. Measure and lightly mark the branch’s ends on the wall. Secure the hooks approximately 1-inch inward from each endpoint, cloak the branch in muslin strips, and then wrap the lights around it. Cut two lines of fishing wire. Wrap the wire around the branch approximately 1-inch from its endpoints. Fashion the ends into a knot to make a loop and repeat on the opposite end. Hang the fishing wire onto the hooks.
