Rustic Letters

This weekend was extremely windy. Looking out to our backyard I couldn't help but notice all the branches that had fallen. I needed to do something with these little guys. So I went out and started collecting.

I have been searching high and low for a unique M to hang on our walls. I wanted something medium to large sized with a rustic feel. However, my searches have been coming up short. Until now!

As I have written before, I am a huge fan of Nate Berkus. On his show, he continuously talks about adding a natural piece into a room. What a great way to use the fallen branches! So I started with some branches and my trusty hot glue gun. I simply laid out a couple branches and then kept adding until it was the shape I wanted.

And there you have it. This picture is zoomed-in simply because the rest of the room isn't complete. I love the way it came out. Not perfect--just what I was looking for.
