I honestly went on a nature walk with my kids and cut some from random trees. And then painted them white.

Ha! I did the same thing in our backyard but painted them black. They look really neat. How did you stand them up? A friend recommended wiring them together and using a doll stand.... I haven't tried it yet.

I had mine in pots, so I bought some plaster of paris and put some in the bottom of the pots. I did make sure to cover the hole first! lol
That way they would stay and they werent too heavy.

I did the same thing...went to the woods. We cut the branch for our wishing tree, the others we found on the ground. We are in the process of spray painting them white.

I found branches that light at Big Lots. Mine are wooden natural looking with little LEDs that are battery operated. I tested one out and it lasted for more than 10 hours on the battery pack.

I collected mine outside too. Spray painted them silver and placing them in tall glass vases I picked up for $7 at Marshall's. I also found hanging crystals at Marshall's. Filling the base of the vase with artificial snow.

Sort of like this...

Those are really pretty, but I'm going for the look of a wish tree

cheapest place I have found was on ebay. I wanted to do these for my centerpieces and just couldn't grasp the idea of paying that much for branches when there was woods in my back yard. So I just went on a branch hunt with my kids and a couple friends.

I don't have a picture of my Wish Tree up yet, but that's the kind of branch I used. I just went into the woods and cut a small tree down and trimmed it up to look the way I wanted it to.
