This is simply a wall hanging for home decor using an old picture frame without glass.

Approximate Time:



  1. Simply attach old bark from a tree, many times found on the ground around a tree with hot glue around the frame being careful to completely cover the outside of the frame.
  2. Glue a small branch in the center of the frame.
  3. Optional: add other bits of nature, such as smaller twigs, seed pods, cones, or grasses for interest.
  4. When completed lightly brush with Mod Podge to preserve.

We are new to Tennessee and my husband is big into deer and all the other wild life in our back yard. He got to choose how to decorate our den. He found a cheap picture frame and picture he wanted to hang up, but the frame was gold so I went out in the back yard and collected bark from some of our native trees. This really added to his outdoor and cabin style plus we did this to the other pictures and took sticks for curtain rods and a lot of garage sale finds (other people's trash now our treasure) for other decor.

Approximate Time 15 min



Take the bark and break to fit the frame, overlap when necessary and glue in place. Easy and simple.
