I have joined up with a really awesome group of clever ladies on Facebook called the Simple Daily DIY Group! The idea behind the group is to create a simple project that takes around 10 minutes. Today’s challenge is to make something out of Twigs and Sticks! This has led me to my 10 Minute Twig Tree!
10 Minute Twig Tree using Vintage Doily’s
*This post contains affiliate links. Which means I may receive a very small commission to go towards my blog maintenance. It does NOT result in additional charges to you or cost you anything extra. See here for my full disclosure*
- Twigs from your garden
- Small Vintage doilies – I picked up a whole bag of these sweet little 3.5″ doily’s from a garage sale for 50c but the ones from Amazon would work also.
- Small wooden Pegs
- White Enamel or Galvanized Pitcher – I used my White Pitcher from my Simple Ways using Numbers to Decorate Project but either of these sweet jugs would work a treat.
- Scrap paper
Using your scrap paper, place your twigs into your pitcher and scrunch the paper all around so that the twigs are stable.
Then using your small pegs and vintage doily’s peg away and decorate your branches.
I am really enjoying these challenges as I don’t often get to make things for myself and it also really gets your creative juices flowing! Hopefully, through seeing some of my projects through this challenge you will be inspired too!
Don’t have time to make now? Be sure to Pin for later 🙂
Some more of my Simple Daily DIY Challenge:
This is such a great way to display old doilies. I have a bag full of my grand and great-grandmothers doilies but they are big and some awkwardly shaped. If I had small ones like these I know exactly what I’d do 😉
Thank you, Toni! I love doily’s and use them a lot with my little displays but especially with my market stall set ups!
I can’t believe you got all of those awesome doilies for 50 cents! That is a really fun and creative way to display them. I have large doilies so I’ll have to think about the best way to display them.
I know Melony! It was a great find and was tickled pink with my find! I’m sure however you decide to display them they will look wonderful!
That is so cute!!! I have got to get some garage sales!!
Thank you, Susanne! I’m sure when you get there you will find some wonderful treasures and then be addicted! Thank you for popping by! Hope you have a wonderful weekend 🙂
This is just so cute and great way to show off doilies.
Thank you, Lisa! I thought it was a little bit different which I love! Have a wonderful weekend 🙂
Simple and Cute! I love your comment about getting creative juices flowing with these daily 10 minute projects. I am not a DIY gal…though from all of the craft supplies, sewing machines, etc you wouldn’t know it! I think I am going to come up with one a month just get me back in the swing. It is always so satisfying to make something you love!
Thank you, Debbie! It’s a great idea and makes you think of things that you wouldn’t even think of ordinarily! I totally agree with you when making something you love as it just makes that project so much more special!
This is super cute. I have always wanted to know the names of bushes that would make great natural arrangements. I have palm trees and citrus trees and not many actual bushes.
Lovely photos and DIY.
Thank you, Pamala! I used branches from a gum tree in our front yard! It dries nicely and has hardy branches that are good to hang goodies from!
Thank you for stopping by and hope you have a wonderful weekend! 🙂
Wow, I would have never thought about pinning doilies to a branch!
What a neat idea.
Thank you, Marjan! It was something that I had never really thought about until I started this project! It’s so funny how inspiration hits! 🙂
I love it!! What an awesome way to display all the little doilies!
Sam, I love this type of project! So simple, yet very beautiful! Pinned to share.

Super cute idea. I do something like this in fall & hang fall leaves. Thanks for sharing at the #InspirationSpotlight party. Pinned & shared.
Oh wow your fall tree sounds just beautiful Theresa! Hope you have a wonderful weekend 🙂
Ok that large thud you heard was my jaw dropping. Love it! Shared on twitter & G+! I just got done photographing my dining room and a doily project I did. But I am afraid to say outloud that I cut up some doilies to use as artwork. I am loving this tree, I have a twiggy centerpiece I bought once and barely use. Now I need to go back to the junk store and find some tiny doilies. Very inspiring!
Oh Christine! You are way to kind! I can’t wait to see what you have done with your doily project! I am sure that your tree will be amazing! 🙂
love this idea so cool thanks for sharing have a great 4th
