There are many ways to put them to work around the home. Don’t pay a fortune and create your own natural design with fallen outdoor finds and leftover wood pieces.
Custom wood items can be expensive. Sturdy, long branches can be cut, sanded, stained or painted and affixed to walls and used as handrails.
