I started this project by a walk around my yard looking for just the right thickness of branches.  I wanted some that looked a bit gnarly and were not too thick, so that they would fit into my centerpiece holder. It took me a while, but in the end, I spotted branches from a neighbor’s sycamore tree that extended into my yard.  Fair play to trim off the intruders, I decided!tree branches and pruners

A few snips with my pruners and the branches were stripped of leaves and just the right length!trimmed tree branches

I placed a long piece of brown paper on the grass and gave the branches a quick spray with some black spray paint.  spray tree branches black

Since these branches were new wood, they soaked up the spray paint, so I used a brush to add more color to the spots that needed it and then added a few strokes of silver glitter, here and there.Adding glitter to tree branches

I used a simple glass vase as my holder.  It measured 3 1/2″ wide and 7 1/4″ tall.  In goes a layer of candy corn to give my branches something to allow them to stand up straight. I filled it just over 1/2 full.Add candy corn to a glass vase
