Rustic Accents for Your Home -
45 Projects from Vines, Twigs and Branches

by Laura Bethmann and Ann Ramp Fox

“The natural world is our home and we like to bring a little bit of it into the house”

writes Laura Bethmann in the preface to this fun home decorating guide. She and co-author Ann Fox show how to form whimsical, practical, naturally pleasing “twig things” while enhancing your knowledge of the unique characteristics and beneficial qualities of trees. Using found natural materials and a few simple tools learn to make twiggy home necessities—from baskets and signs to clocks and headboards. Clear instructions and full color throughout.
