Wood is often seen as an easy way to add some “warmth” to a room… and it’s true: Whatever the style, your décor can be enhanced by adding a touch of wood for a warmer look. Keep in mind that birch is a very special type of tree. This increasingly trendy interior design item works brilliantly with any décor – traditional, contemporary, country or transitional – since it lights up the room with a touch of white.
Adapting your décor to your personal taste, while keeping within your budget, can sometimes prove strenuous. How about creating your own unique piece from birch – at a low cost?
Well, here’s a little wall hanging that you can make at home, out of birch!
Here’s what you’ll need:
• Birch branches, preferably of varying diameters and lengths
• A yarn needle with an eye large enough for the string
• A pencil
• A knife with a retractable blade (e.g., an Exacto knife) or a pair of scissors
• A tape measure
• Drill and bit (diameter 1/8″ to 3/16”)
• Adhesive tape
*Useful tip: We suggest that you read all of the steps set out below before you start the project.
