This was by far one of the easiest decoration projects I have done in my entire life. I went out to our backyard and cut some small branches off of some trees and laid them out on an old shower curtain in the yard. I then used some silver spray paint I had in the garage and spray painted the branches. After the first side dried I flipped them over and did the same to the other side. I had originally planned to use them in my dining room centerpiece but I didn't like that you wouldn't be able to carry on a conversation. They sat in the garage for about a week and then WHAM it hit me. I had a silver pot in the garage that I wasn't using so I just shoved them in there and bought some white glittery snowflakes from Target (4 pack for $1) and hung them from a few of the branches.
Sorry, I didn't exactly take a before picture of the branches but I think it's safe to say we all know what tree branches look like.
