Spring decoration: Candy twigs

I always wanted to be able to build a nest like a bird, just to put it on the table or somewhere else as a decoration. Maybe that’s why I always start to collect the little twigs from the birch trees in front of our house, as soon as they come down with the first spring storm.

So far I have decorated presents with them or made wreaths with spring flowers, but today I had a different idea. I was inspired by all the beautiful things I had seen on pinterest, especially this one.

I used Haribo Pico-Balla because of their nice colours and their perfect small size. Their soft centers can be gently pushed onto the little protruding bits of the twigs and they just stay there like magic.

  1. That is so pretty! I did something similar with buttons on some twigs, an idea I got from the Chez Larsson blog. But this is another level altogether. Gorgeous. x
