Many of us are looking for ways to bring the outdoors in. Especially during the winter seasons when we spend so much of our time indoors looking out. (Unless you are lucky enough to live in the beautiful South)

In my search for uses of tree branches used as decoration I came across a recommendation on how to seal the branch. Make sure the branch has thoroughly dried out before shellacking (or sealing) it. If the branch is still moist at the core it will mildew and you will need to discard it. You can find a sealant and most any craft store.

If the thought of bringing a tree branch into your home is not very appealing you can get the same effect with a wall mural as seen in the above picture. A great website for wall murals and words is .  They are not as scarce as they once were to find. Check out your local craft store or even Target or Walmart.
These are all very easy and beautiful additions to make to your home.
