Tree Branch Picture Frame Holder

Tree Branch Picture Frame Holder
Just one of many small projects I gave myself for this Xmas day playroom reveal!

This is how my to do list stands...we are 99% done, with a trip to Menard's scheduled for today. The highlighted items are done-zo.

List of Things Still To Be Done
-Paint walls
-Make pillows
-Some sort of light feature
-Get a couch
-Frame photos and hang from a tree branch (stay tuned)
-Get a T.V.

And the good thing about the pillow making is that I can just not do it and buy pillows...that's 
where I'm at.

So, for the Tree Branch Frame Holder.  Sammy found this awesome branch in our backyard! He brought it in as a potential new walking stick. I decided it needed to be mine. 
The trick was finding out how to hang the branch without having to drill millions of holes into the wall. So I found these hooks at target and secured them with drywall anchors and screws.
After I adjusted my branch how I wanted it to lay, I bought two frames at Marshall's for $5 a pop. Be sure your frames have hanging mechanics on the sides of the frame not just the top. I then tied my black velvet ribbon to each side of the frame and connected a small loop to the center of that.

I figured that the look lends itself to natural hanging, not exactly precise lines. I really love the small imperfections that come from home made items.

You can see a glance of what we have done so far! The black patch of paint under the stairs is magnetic...and the stand now holds a T.V. ready for family movie nights.

Here are the links to my other playroom posts if you are curious about paint colors and the master plan!
