BRANCH­ING OUT

Real Weddings - - Good Things -

We wouldn’t be go­ing out on a limb to say that “rus­tic” is all the rage (on Pin­ter­est and IRL). Take the look in a sur­pris­ingly mod­ern di­rec­tion by paint­ing one of its sta­ples (a piece of drift­wood) in an elec­tri­fy­ing hue. We coated a real 24-inch

“Ghost Wood” branch ($50, ja­ma­li­gar­den.com) in neon “Poi­son Light” spray paint ($7.75, mon­tana-cans.com), then set it in a serene scene of cool grays and blues for a pleas­ant—and punchy—con­trast. Now that we’ve planted the idea, you might try

sourc­ing branches, trunks, and logs from a lo­cal nurs­ery, your own back­yard, or on­line crafts stores like Save-on-Crafts.com. The re­sult is bound to be a (su­per)nat­u­ral show­stop­per—no burlap or ma­son jars re­quired.
