These faux iced branches are amazingly easy to make and extremely budget-friendly. You only need 3 things.
Cover your work surface with disposable counter covers like these. It is nice to roll up the mess and toss it in the garbage when your project is finished.
Assemble your desired branches.
Spray each branch with spray adhesive and quickly sprinkle the Epsom salts onto the glue.
Allow it to dry which happens very quickly. If you want your fake snow to be thicker, spray and cover it with Epsom salts again
Repeat this process on any pine cones if you choose to add those to your winter decor vignette.
I used my faux iced winter branches as part of my winter mantle scape which is currently Valentine themed. After Valentine’s Day is passed I will leave the faux winter branches up because we have enjoyed them so much.
I used lantana, crepe myrtle, and Leyland cypress in my vases. The vases are actually crystal but I used a white knee-high sock to cover them and create a winter look.
Make a Valentine Rag Wreath while you are watching TV one evening. It is quick, easy and inexpensive.
The faux-iced winter branches are just so much fun to make and display. Living in Georgia we have lots of pine trees with pine cones and plenty of other evergreen trees such as Leyland cypress. You can’t beat free when you are creating and of course, homemade is always better.
