DIY tree branch feature for my kitchen

It’s hard to make a rented house look exactly the way you want it. For the past few months I’ve been on a DIY binge trying to add character and personality to the place that I currently call home. My latest DIY project is this vase of illuminated branches.

Here’s how I pieced it together:

Vase

I picked up the vase in TK Maxx for €16.99

Sand

I acquired the sand. Let’s leave it at that.

Branches

I took the branches from a fallen birch tree in a forest nearby.

Lights

I wrapped battery-operated wire LED lights around the branches. They were a few euro in Tiger.

It will work as a year-round decoration but it looks particularly good with my Christmas table.
