Using Nature as Sculptural Art

By
Home Stager with Stage It In A Day!

Well here goes...my very first blog!  Hope it turns out ok.

Recently the homeowner behind me was high up in his palm trees cutting down these large "canoe looking" leaves.  As one dropped into my yard I immediately thought wall hanging!   I asked my neighbor for these other valuable art pieces that were destined for the yard trimming bin.  He was thinking along my lines and said "you can use these in your decorating business".  

So I spray painted varnish on them, grouped them together and VOILA, they looked stunning in this tall vase I purchased on clearance at Pier 1.  Below is a picture of them in the living room of a vacant home we just staged.  (More pictures on that in another post!).

Thank you!  We're actually going to use these again in a recessed dining nook later this week.  I've also been eyeing my palm trees for new "art"...I may use them in my own home.   A friend of mine is going to hang hers horizontally above her bed in a room w/ a tropical feel.

Patti,

You have a great eye! I have used natural elements, but I would never have thought of spray painting with varnish--thanks for the idea! Here is an example of how I "branched out" with some artwork:

Kathi,

Thanks!   Those branches look great.  I love using natural elements.  Now my husband understands all the pieces of driftwood I have accumulated!
