Creative Ways To Use Branches, Twigs, and Sticks

4. You can move inside with the hook idea as well. Natural wood is showing up everywhere in the design world, from tree stump stools to cross section coasters. So try a few branch hooks (again, using a length of branch that has a natural fork) in the kitchen (think oven mitts or large utensils), bathroom (think towels or even toilet paper!), or elsewhere (like hanging jewelry in the bedroom, or coat hooks in the entryway).

5. You can use larger branches to build a beautiful, nature-inspired decorative head board for your bed. Just use a piece of plywood as a the backing, then screw or glue the branches either vertically, horizontally, or if you feel up to it, in a random patchwork pattern for a more artistic take.

6. So obvious I almost consider it cheating to include this, but here goes: use a relatively straight tree branch as a stand-in for a curtain rod.

7. You can make a lovely display by gluing smaller branches or twigs around the outside of a vessel. Use a coffee can or soup can and you’ve got a pretty vase to use as a holiday centerpiece. Use a glass mason jar and you’ve got yourself a lovely candle holder, perfect for little tea lights. These would look great along a mantle or appetizer table.

8. And speaking of the holidays, why not take a few long, thin branches and arrange them artfully in a large vase. Then, you can hang a select few carefully placed ornaments, for an all natural, minimalist-modern holiday feel.
