How to make iced branches for centerpieces

You can create incredible iced branch displays for weddings, receptions, windows and home decorating by using branches. You can even add lights if you want to make them twinkle in the candlelight.

Materials needed:

Tree branches [artificial or real]
Tacky Glue
Colorfill Diamond Vase Filler [1 lb or 2 lb size]

Step 1.

Place a sheet of newspaper down for a work area. Pour a pile of Colorfill Diamonds (add German glass glitter for extra sparkle) in the center.

Step 2.

Place tacky glue on the branches and smooth it out along the branch(not in big clumps). Then fold the paper slightly up to keep the contents in the center. Roll the branch in the Diamonds (and glitter). Let set for about 45 minutes. Now work on the opposite side of the branch. Wait 1/2 hour and you have ice covered branches. easy as that!

You can also add artificial moss or red berries to some of the branches or even pine cones to add some special effects.
