18 Ways to Decorate with Hanging Branches

Hanging branches, how we love thee. Let us count the ways.

The best thing about this project? At most all you’ll have to do is trim some twigs and tie on string. Go for the spray paint if you’re feeling really crazy.

All this being said, hanging branches are the perfect look for the summer-to-fall transition time. Give it a try!
