This is a beautiful summer or spring room decor idea that can brighten up your interior space and make it more stylish. You can customise it by adding more branches or colours as you wish to match your taste! Let’s see how I made this pretty DIY branch and flowers!

Steps to make a DIY Branch Decor with flowers
Making this DIY branch decor is very easy and will not take a lot of your time! Watch the video tutorial at the top or follow the below steps!
Using a wire cutter, cut a piece of thin metal wire at least 80 cm long. Bend it in half. This is going to be our main branch.
Now, let’s bend one tip of it to form a single wire sub-branch. You don’t have to go for perfection here. You can even make little bends on this sub-branch if you wish to.
I wanted to make one more sub-branch. So I cut another small piece of metal wire and connected it to the main branch by bending and twisting it several times on the main branch. You can add as many sub-branches as you wish.
Now, we will cover up the metal wire using a brown twisted paper rope. I got this twisted paper rope from a nearby craft store. (I didn’t know what i would use it for until this DIY branch idea came up to my mind!)
If you don’t have a twisted paper rope handy, you can go for jute twine instead.
Wrap it around the metal wire until the wire is completely covered. Use hot glue or super glue to keep it in place.
Make sure every branch and sub-branch is completely covered.
Okay! So we got the branch ready! Let’s make some tissue paper flowers to stick on the branch.
Cut 4 small square pieces out of a tissue paper as shown below. (All of the same size.)
Cut these square pieces into flower shapes as shown below. I recommend you to watch the video at the top to get a better idea on how to cut the square pieces into flower shapes.
Lay the flower shapes on top of each other and stick them to each other using craft glue. You can use a toothpick to make this step easier. Dip one tip of the toothpick in glue and use this tip to pick the flower shapes easily.
Get another small piece of tissue paper(preferably, of a different colour), crumple it and make a tiny ball out of it. Now, stick it to the centre of the flower we got from the previous step.
Make a lot of these tissue paper flowers. Now, we will stick these flowers on the branch using craft glue.
(If you used jute twine for the branch, you may have to use hot glue or super glue to stick the flowers).
Next, get some transparent nylon thread and cut a few pieces of different lengths out of it. We will tie these pieces on the branch. I tied 4 pieces of transparent thread on mine.
Stick a few flowers on these threads. I love how these transparent threads help to give the effect of a flower falling off the branch. You may want to cut the extra length of threads hanging below the flowers.
Time to add some leaves now! Cut a few leaf shapes out of a green felt paper. Stick them on the branch and the transparent threads using hot glue.
Yes! We just made a beautiful DIY Branch Decor 🙂
You can tie a piece of transparent thread on both the ends of the branch to hang it on the wall.
