  • Thin branches or twigs such as fruit tree off-shoots
  • Craft paints in white orange, yellow, red, green, teal and gold metallic
  • 9 ” X and O MDF letters
  • Garden pruning shears
  • Hot glue gun and clear craft glue


  • Place generous amounts of the yellow, orange and white paints, side-by-side on a plate or palette. Place the red, green and teal on separate sections of the plate.
  • Paint 2-3 twigs with each of the colors to have enough to cover all of the letters (keep some of the branches unpainted).
  • Starting at the bottom of one letter, snip a branch in any color (maybe start with a thicker one) to size. Glue in place with the hot glue.
  • Continue, up the letter until finished. Alternate the colors and thicknesses of the branches to get the nicest effect.
