Today is the last day of November, and as I’ve already been talking about the holidays for a week or so now (sorry, I get excited), it seem as if it’s finally acceptable with the coming of December.

So now, if you haven’t already begun, it’s time to really start thinking about what you’re buying, what you’re cooking, and what you’re going to be decorating with for whichever holiday you and your family celebrate. Have no fear, I’ll be here every step of the way, suggesting ideas and hopefully easing your holiday stresses, even if it’s just a little bit.

I stumbled upon this DIY/decorating idea when I was perusing Pinterest the other day (the greatest addition to holidays since, I don’t know, anything). Iced Branches. There’s something so beautiful about icicles and unfortunately, with this winter weather we’ve been having the past few years, I rarely see them anymore. So let’s make our own.

This DIY is so simple. All you need is some thin tree branches (which can be purchased at any craft store, or collected outside), tacky glue, Colorfill Diamond Vase Filler (also available at a craft store) and glitter. Place a sheet of newspaper down on your work area; pour the Colorfill Diamonds and glitter in the center of the newspaper.

Lightly smooth tacky glue all over the branches and then proceed to roll the branches in the Colorfill Diamond/glitter mixture. Wait 45 minutes for your branches to dry and voila! There you have them, quick and easy DIY iced branches.

These branches would look incredible placed in a tall glass vase for your windowsill, hall table, or dinner table centerpiece.

Happy crafting!
