I put these black branches up for Halloween. I liked them so much that I kept them through Thanksgiving, painted them red for Christmas, then painted them black again for the rest of winter. I was just getting ready to take them down when the April issue of Martha came and I found these. So cute and easy to make, I couldn't help myself, I made hundreds. Very addictive, so if you make them have plenty of vellum handy. I am headed to the craft store right now for more.
