A love story between a lamp and a few twigs

Relaxing before you have to jump back into the work week? Me too... kinda. Blogging is relaxing to me. I thought, you know, it's been way to long since I've posted a diy project. (Three jobs might have something to do with that!) 
I moved some things around after we (I) took the christmas decos down, and I had this old lamp that was just crying out desperately for a little redo. This is what I came up with.....


Supplies: twigs, hedge trimmer, hot glue gun, white spray paint....



New lamp!! Happy lamp!!



Happy husband-who has a resourceful wife! Not trying to toot my own horn-just excited about my twig lamp!
