15 Ways to Decorate with TWIGS. Simple. Gorgeous. Just like Pocahontas.

There is something to be said about decorating with sticks.

 

#DIY : 15 Ideas for decorating with #twigs.  Gorgeousness.  A must read blog post via @lynneknowlton

It makes you feel a bit like Pocahontas.

 A wild child.

 Living in the woods.

 

It also causes you to think outside the decorator box.  Keeping it simple.  Yet beautiful.  Inexpensive, but not cheap.  Well thought out, yet organic looking.

Pocahontas |ˌpōkəˈhäntəs| definition :

An American Indian woodsy gal with long flowing locks of hair, a plethora of gorgeousness, living an eco-friendly life.   And a Virgin.

Just like me.  A  V.I.R.G.I.N.  Did I just gross you out?  I think I just grossed myself out.

On to twigs.  I need to get that virgin part outta my head right now.

 

What would Pocahontas do with twigs?

 

1.  She would surely make furniture :

Twig furniture created from Cedar Twigs & Branches

I technically tried to make this furniture.  Once.   This is why I drink.  I try and attempt twig chair projects.  Did you know that twigs can sprout wings and fly ?  They can in my world.  Pffft.  But look how they land so nicely on all four legs.

 

 A well trained chair :

Sit

As a designer, I like the visual of the twig furniture in certain settings.  Like a treehouse.   Sitting in one is a whole different story.  If you take the sitting risk….get ready for the most uncomfortable chair on the face of the earth.  Just sayin’.  Pack some junk in your trunk.

 You need a lot of padding for a twig chair.  Like a truck load.

If you look closely, you will see that my barn cat FELIX attacked my twig chair.

 Bad ass.

 

The good news : A twig furniture class can be therapeutic.  Great fun to do with a gal pal. Take wine with you.   It will help you forget that your butt is numb.

 

2.  Pocahontas might even build a fence :

#DIY : 15 Ideas for decorating with #twigs.  Gorgeousness.  A must read blog post via @lynneknowlton

How brilliant is that? It would be a great trellis for vine too.

A little warning:  Keep all kids at a good distance from this fence, if they are looking for a marshmallow stick.  Luckily, the branches aren’t whittled to a point. It would be a READY MADE marshmallow roaster.  It is super unique and made with FREE building supplies therefore it gets a high score in my books.

 

3.  How about a Bird Feeder?

It looks easier than making a twig chair.

4.  Jewelry holder :

It speaks for itself.  This little DIY is a snap to do.  You could also create it with old metal buckets, sap buckets, your fine china vases…whatever.  Pour concrete into a vase, stick in a twig branch (support it)  let it dry …and VOILA.  No more monkeys in a barrel for your necklaces.

Necklace PEACE. Twig to the rescue.

5.  Twig style of lighting:

A driftwood version:

Driftwood light ~ Hand made in Bali

This next idea is not technically a twig.  There is a default excuse.  There is one in the background.  Why have typical lighting ? This one was $19 from HomeSense.  It is bamboo.  Or something twig-like.  We wallpapered the ceiling, and painted it white.  Wallpaper is from Home Depot.  Paint is Benjamin Moore – Chantilly Lace OC-65 in a semi-gloss.  Linen curtain is from West Elm.

6. Dear Swiss Family Robinson…

 I am sure they would have thought of this :

#DIY : 15 Ideas for decorating with #twigs.  Gorgeousness.  A must read blog post via @lynneknowlton

Hide  an  unsightly  post  with  Bamboo !   Saahweeet  idea !

Not rocket science.  Not high tech.  Not main stream.  Yet…. Simply beautiful.

7.  Imagine this idea for an outdoor space, garden area, lanai  :

#DIY : 15 Ideas for decorating with #twigs.  Gorgeousness.  A must read blog post via @lynneknowlton

How gorgy gorgeous is that ?!!

Does that make you want to live in a grass hut ? With twig window coverings.  Dream life.

 

8.  This signage is a DIY twig no-brainer: 

 

 Wood background, painted white, slap on some twigs.

Ba-da-boom-ba-da-bing…

9.  How about a fence with a funky sheer curtain AND twigs ?!  But of course.

Talk about peaceful. Simple.  Understated.  Different.  Cost effective.  Great privacy idea.

Ok, I can’t think of any more adjectives.

Very cool concept.

No one will see that you are highballing cocktails every night.

#DIY : 15 Ideas for decorating with #twigs.  Gorgeousness.  A must read blog post via @lynneknowlton

It  may  be  beautiful  to  even  paint  these  twigs  in  creamy  white.

10.  Lighting.  With a stick.  A very long stick.  Ok, Bamboo.

 Every time I reflect on this next photo, I think about the hard time that some people give me {no names to protect the not-so-innocent}…when I say that we need more unique lighting in our lives.  It is not that complicated.  There is some seriously ugly crap out there in the retail lighting world.  Except the light in this next photo.  Check it out.  A light made with a piece of bamboo.

Freaking  Brilliance :

#DIY : 15 Ideas for decorating with #twigs.  Gorgeousness.  A must read blog post via @lynneknowlton

Some  of  the  best  ideas  are  the  simplest  ideas

Don’t you wish you were sitting in that sand?  Even if the sand was stuck in your bathing suit bottom?  You wouldn’t care.  The margarita’s coconut juice would take your mind off of your filled drawers. Back to twigs.  Damn it.

 

11.  Little Miss Pocahontas smarty pants would undoubtably make a curtain rod.

Definitely.

A curtain rod.

Twig  Curtain  Rod –  LOVE

Have you priced a curtain rod lately?  I promise you, some of the ugliest curtain rods on earth are in a store near you.  You may need to take out a second mortgage to pay for them too.

It is redone.  Forget-ta-bout-it.

 Make one.

 Twig to the rescue.

Epic Twiggy LOVE

It is no secret that I have an undying love of twig curtain rods.  Pocahontas and I could absolutely be buds.  Except I would be jealous of her hair.  And the fact that the ‘Last of the Mohicans‘ was chasing after her in a loin cloth.

A window without a curtain is like putting on a leather thong without the feather.  It just completes the look.

How coolio is this?

Twig  roof  top  with  Ribbons,  Petals  &  Buddha LOVE

13.  Driftwood.

The sight of driftwood renders me almost speechless.  So soft and smooth to the touch.  Organic.  Full of character.

If I lived near a beach, I would wear saddle bags with my bathing suit while gathering driftwood & shells for F.O.R.E.V.E.R.

Pocahontas would understand.

14.  Twigs in a vase

Hello …

FREE and so easy to do.

Leave them natural or spray paint them WHITE.

#DIY : 15 Ideas for decorating with #twigs.  Gorgeousness.  A must read blog post via @lynneknowlton

Beautifully Simple

15.  Twig Loungers :

Need twigs but don’t have a tree?  Your neighbor should be afraid. Very, very afraid.  Lop off the branches when he isn’t looking.  He will never notice that you have a new lounger on your back deck made of his tree branches.

 

#DIY : 15 Ideas for decorating with #twigs.  Gorgeousness.  A must read blog post via @lynneknowlton

Twig  Canopy  Daybeds  with  Sheer  Curtains

Whateva…if your neighbor has a few less branches on his tree.  You’ve seen one branch, you’ve seen them all.  They all look the same.

He will never be able to IDENTIFY his so-called branches.

Aren’t you glad I’m not your neighbor?

Your trees would be NAKED.

 I would stand there looking all innocent-like.

* I would totally be the one who stole your tree branches *

My bad.  Your problem.

  3. I loved all of your projects, being a nature girl myself. I was wondering if you have to treat the twigs with anything before you use them.

    • Hi Ellie

      I have never had to treat my twigs before I used them.

      Cross my fingers, knock on wood… I haven’t had any problems. Now that I said that, I probably will. LOL.

      Have fun !

  10. Susan Rossi says:

    Lynne, love your site, love your writing and your thought processes! Hope I have the courage to implement one-half of your great ideas while I begin planning my living room re-do on a budget!

    We do NOT have a budget (what’s a budget?) to refinish hardwood floors on the first floor but want to pull up our old carpet that – well let’s just say it should have its drivers license at this point.

    There was carpeting previously back in the day that avocado green was really popular so the hardwood floors have not seen daylight for a long time.

    Since we have had several dogs that have….you know….piddled on the carpet – we are afraid what the wood would (funny huh?) look like. We would lay down new area rugs SO the big question IS – should we “GO FOR IT” and go shabby chic with area rugs WITHOUT refinishing the floors or just keep the old carpet for now?

    Some how I think we could pull it off but once we start cutting….there’s no going back and no extra money to refinish the floors! Who’s with me???!

    • Tee heeeeeeee Susan

      “your carpet should have a drivers license by now”… hilare !!

      Can you take a peak at your floors ? Is it possible to just sneak a corner up and see how the floors are doing under there?

      Tough question… but I think if it were me… I would rip out the carpet. Carpet holds all kinds of heebie jeebies…. and at least the floor could be a nice fresh start.

      Go for it !

    Loved this! I had to laugh – my neighbours trees are pretty much twigless. I just love them! I hang seashells from branches and watch them dance in the wind – a bit of fishing line and superglue is all you need. Best blog I’ve seen in a long time! Keep up the good work!

    • Thanks Susan,

      Sorry for the late reply. I lost this one in the weeds somewhere.

      I want to come to your neighbourhood and stare at all the trees. I will be able to find EXACTLY where you live. LOL.

      Seashells from branches? Brills idea !!! I’m stealing that one. Thanks ! xx

      PS. Thanks for the epic blog love. *blush*

      Kisses,
      Lynne

  13. justsomeone says:

    So, I had the branch ready to hang in my kitchen but was unsure of attachment to the wall and now I’m ready to change to a twig since the hanging was an issue. How did you secure the Y-shaped twig to the wall? It’s the perfect solution and so simple! I’m guessing some super long screw? (insert sex joke here…) Thanks!

    • Oh geesh,
      I guess I took a few months to reply to your comment. LOL. My bad.

      I attached the twig to the wall with a screw.

      Oh my, now all I can think of is ‘a super long screw’ {insert sex joke}

      Laughing out loud. Laughing out loud.

      Thanks for that !!

    I have been obsessed of late with the notion of constructing twig FAIRY furniture. I figure that they don’t actually sit, so it won’t hurt their fairy fannies. I am at the collection stage, however, but I think that the lichen-covered bark pieces I find may lend themselves to a Goldsworthy-esque, here-today-gone-tomorrow vibe. I once traveled across the US.Canada border with a branch from our family homestead. The border agent was not a twig aficionado.

  15. Bertye Gluckstein says:

    Where can I buy 2 twig chairs exactly like the ones you have in the picture.I have two which are now about 20 years old and they have rotted . I would like to get 2 new ones. I live in Toronto Canada . Where can I get them ?

    • Hi Bertye !
      I am located about 2 hours NW of the Toronto airport. I have a friend who makes the chairs. If you like, I can put you in touch with her, and she can make them for you.

      You may have to come visit our treehouse to come pick them up :) …. or…. we do go into Toronto every 12 weeks for my hubby’s chemo. We could maybe meet you in Toronto.

      My email addy is lynne@lynneknowlton.com if you want to reach me that way too.

      Have an awesome day!

    Love your ideas! I am writing to seek permission to use the picture you have listed on your site of the children’s chair made from tree branches in a history I am writing about my 3rd great-grandfather; he made chairs like this out of the clippings from his orchard (in the late 1860’s). I would like to put your picture in as an illustration, if you would give me permission to do so.

    Thanks, Margaret

    I LOVE YOUR SITE!!!!!! Please keep dreaming and creating all of these wonderful dreamy ideas of yours. I want to so badly to make “something” from twigs to go in my dream cabin room I am working on.

    Lynne, ok, i have the plans from the internet on how to make a twig table. Cant wait to get up tomorrow to look for twigs. I am really excited about this. I used to make jokes about liking twig furniture but i’m gonna do it. Do I need a level? linda

    Yep! I am!

  21. Linda says:

    I said something in my earlier comment that I have to take back: My ex-husband is not “stupid.” That word has no business being in my vocabulary since I have long considered it a cuss word. I don’t know how it slipped back in, but I’m going to have to kick it out.

    What I meant was that he tries to do things that are too much for him (like lifting something heavy) and it knocks him down … but then he tries to do it again (with the same result). Well, I make the same mistakes over and over again too, so who am I to talk?

    • Lynne Knowlton says:

      Ahhhh no worries Linda
      The way that you phrased ‘stupid’ in your last comment, was in a FUN WAY. That is what matters. If that is a cuss word, then I am in big trouble. I have a potty mouth at the best of times. I am happy that you chimed in and had some fun along the way ! Happy New Year !! xx

  22. Linda says:

    You are one kooky-nut. I love you! And here I thought I was the only crazy wild thing in our universe … and the only twig-loving pocahontas-like virgin (ahem) … well, not a virgin exactly, but virginish. I’ve given birth to 6 children (2 passed on at age 34 and 40), and I expect to retire next year from a very stressful job. In my spare time, I like to gather up diy ideas for my retirement days and I spend most weekends at my former mother-in-law’s home helping her keep an eye on my ex-husband who has liver cancer but still thinks he’s young and stupid (well, the stupid part is true sometimes).
    I have to go look for twigs now. I think I saw some super-looking ones in front of a house down the block. I hope they aren’t home.
    Happy New Year to you and yours. .

    • Lynne Knowlton says:

      Well nice to meet you from one kooky nut to another. Awesome !! You have had 6 children and work a stressful job ? Wow ! You are my yoda :) Best of luck with finding some fantastic twigs. I bet you will make something gorgeous…just like pocahontas. xx Much love in the New Year.

    Love your blog!

    • Lynne Knowlton says:

      Joanne
      You ROCK OUT LOUD. I had that same chandelier and I didn’t think of that !!!!! Where is my third leg when I need to kick myself?! LOL. I LOVE LOVE LOVE your idea. Great job ! Great job !
      P.s. After a long time, if you get tired of it, I wonder what it would look like if you spray painted the whole thing WHITE including the twigs? Ok, I clearly have a white paint obsession. Smack me. Smack me NOW.
      Big hugs!
      GREAT WORK !!
      LOVE LOVE LOVE

      • Joanne says:

        Thanks, Lynne!! That’s like Martha herself giving me a pat on the back, but even better because you’re Canadian, right? My cottage is near Westport, Ont, and
        even though I love white, I’ll stick with the red for now. I can’t wait to add some fir boughs for Christmas. Take care!

        • Lynne Knowlton says:

          Ohhhh yah, I’m a Canuck ! Fir boughs for Christmas will be brilliant. A little bit of dogwood branches with splashes of red. Cranberries floating in water with floating candles. I can almost smell rum and egg nog from here. :)

  26. Marcia says:

    Love your site, Had a ball looking it over and think there may even be some things I can do myself(I am 65) My husband is not ,nor has he ever been a handy Andy.So when I surf the web and fall in love w/something ,I REALLY have to think about whether or not I can accomplish it. I think my absolute favorite is the twig curtain rods, LOVE EM!! I am pretty sure they will be showing up in my bathroom in the near future.and the plus side is, I have woods behind my house!!Lucky me! Keep up the good work.You inspire me beyond words.Thanks, Marcia

    • Lynne Knowlton says:

      Hi Marcia !
      The twig curtain rods are so awesome ! You will be thrilled with yourself, even without handy Andy. LOL. I sometimes buy throw blankets and even tea towels (!!!) and use the circular looped curtain holders to attach the tea towels/curtains/throw blankets to the twig rod.
      If you need to see a photo to know what I mean, I can post one for you on my facebook page. Just click the facebook icon on the top right side of my blog and it will take you there :)

  27. Rook says:

    I love twigs and sticks too….. however, anything I attempt to do that requires the alter-ization (my word :D) of a lamp or lampshade, my husband colloquially calls them Franken-lamps……. or Lampensteins….. depending on his mood. LOL!! Anyway, lovely blog, lots of laughs and chuckles while reading. Are you sure you aren’t my long lost sister? I am not a Robinson though…..?

    • Lynne Knowlton says:

      You could be my long lost sista !! Love it ….franken-lamps, lampensteins….tooooo funny !!! Try this one on your husband. Move furniture. When he comes home late at night, and goes to sit on the sofa…it isn’t there. hahahaaa! I move furniture all the time. Michael never knows where he is half the time. I feel like I just moved into a new house -it looks so different. Wooohhoo !

  28. Kathy says:

    I love the “Homage to Twigs” posting. I grew up in Alaska and have always loved rocks, shells, stones, twigs, driftwood, feathers, etc! I have collections of all which connect me to my home (now that i’m living away). Keep up the great posts!

    • Lynne Knowlton says:

      Hi Kathy
      Isn’t it ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE how much fun it can be to play with twigs, rocks, driftwood, shells and stones? Does life get any better than that?!! Thanks for sending the love about my blog posts, MUCH APPRECIATED.
      Big love, Lynne xx

      Hi Marsha,
      I wish I had the pattern for it, but I don’t. Darn. Poop. I am no help :) They are GORGEOUS to look at, aren’t they? I bet you could make one, just by looking at the overall design of one. Do you have cedar near you? Cedar or Willow are great to work with to make twig chairs.

      Wow Alex, You did a round the world trip today. You saw my old blog (that was a miracle) and my new one. You have already accomplished great things today. LOL…with worldly visits like that. I didn’t even think that was possible!
      No worries my friend, I have had many a twig land on my head and twirl out the window like a baton. We are like sista’s! Then, I go and sit down and have a big cold summer beverage.

    I LOVE this! I have made a Christmas tree out of twigs one year, our cat destroyed it – but it was ever so pretty! I REALLY love the jewellery tree – I am going to steal that idea – I hope you don’t mind.?

    Thought I would share around the comment love, seeings as you were so lovely to visit me at my blog.

    Hugs,

      A Christmas tree from twigs? Funky awesome! Sounds like your cat thought it was pretty cool too. LOL. Yes, you may totally steal the jewelry tree idea. I love sharing cool ideas that work for others too.
      Happy blogging right back atcha.

    You crack me up! I’m so going to make the twig curtain rods. I can never find curtain rods that I like, and those are awesome. I’ll be heading out to the back yard with a saw later….my trees are trembling with fear at this very moment! Well, perhaps it’s just really windy right now, but they will be scared. HA!!!

    • Lynne Knowlton says:

      Hahahaaa! Your trees should be vwery vwery scared right now Ashley. You will be surprised how easy it is to find twigs for rods. If you can’t find any in your yard, just peak at the neighbors. Abundance. *_*. LOL
      Lynne xx

  36. LOVE the twig light fixture, the driftwood mirror, the twig chair (except yep…that might hurt after a while) and your twig curtain rods. If only i had known you were such a twig afficionado, i would have saved all the twigs and branches i just threw in the compost bags after my marathon yardwork days last weekend, i could have smuggled them into blogpodium for you! You are one “tree”-ative chick! Lol

    • Lynne Knowlton says:

      Janet,
      I could see you and I taking a twig course…making furniture. How funny would that be?

    If they can make bamboo clothes, then why can’t you design twig clothes? LOL You could call them Twiggys. Wait…I think a model stole that name already.
    Innocent eh? Does this run in the family? Me with barnboard…. you with branches (oh our family tree is branching out :o) )

      Hi Mom,
      Happy Mothers Day. xx
      Family tree ?! We have a family bush the way we branch out. *_*.
      Love you,
      Your kid xx

  38. Love this twig stuff! And the tree house link is amazing, I could park there forever as long as I had a fridge… Love the curtain rods and the light, the door, all of it! Thanks, Lynne!

      Hi Sandra
      The driftwood mirror is almost like a MOSAIC, don’tcha think?
      Too funny about the treehouse…oh yahhhhh,it definitely has a fridge AND freezer. Once you get in the treehouse, you never want to leave *for ice cubes*.

  39. This is a great post Lynne. I wish I had the space to create the jewelry tree. Love it! Happy Mother’s Day chica – enjoy it!! :)

    • Lynne Knowlton says:

      Good point Irma,
      I had the space, but the jewelry tree still attacked Michael when he walked by. I had to retire it to the barn. Boo. I am making a smaller one next. It really did sort all the necklaces FABULOUSLY though. Pretty art too :)

    “A window without a curtain is like putting on a leather thong without the feather. It just completes the look.”
    My little kid is looking at our shining glass coffee table and the newly polished wood floor….both of which have just had a coffee shower, yes Dear Lynn I laughed so hard~ Simply brilliant piece. xoxo

    love it all. I am a ‘walking stick’ and driftwood collector. but i didn’t steal any of mine, they all appeared on our shore at the cottage…. I may, however, steal YOUR idea for the twig curtain rod and use it at the cottage in the girls rooms….make’em all pretty like! And the slatted twig room divider…if i ever have a hot tub….thats what I’m going to make.

    • Lynne Knowlton says:

      Save me a walking stick. Do you have a mosquito beater too? If so, I want to come on a walk with you at the cottage. We can make some twig curtain rods together, and get into trouble …working in our jammies. :)

    Lynne this is beautiful, I can’t believe twigs and sticks could look so beautiful, you are amazing, so creative. I hope you are writing a book containing all of your ideas.

    • Lynne Knowlton says:

      You are soooooo kind to say so! Thanks for the awesome inspiration ! Really, the ‘twigs’ do all the talking..they are they ones that are so creative. Naturally creative. LOL.
