Remember my earlier post about the birdbath and the weeping cherry that didn’t survive the winter? Since it will never bloom I decided to give it a little life and show you what I did to the tree….I JEWELED it. For some reason I just couldn’t make myself dig it up and put it in the compost heap. So instead I got creative.
Back in the day I used to make jewelry and just recently I thought to myself I need to get rid of that stuff it’s just taking up space. Well I’m so glad I didn’t. I was able to add a good amount of bling from my bead stash to the weeping branches.
It couldn’t have been easier, in fact it was quite an enjoyable task and I love it when I get to use up some of those old craft items. All I did was string random glass beads onto jewelry wire, wrap it around the branches, and stand back to admire.
I hope all the bright colored beads help attract birds to the birdbath right below it. I don’t know why I have it in my head that the birds will be attracted to the bright jewel tones, but I do.
I really like the look (no for FREE I love the look). What do you think?
