spooky tree-Gather several large branches from your yard, and spray paint them black. Allow branches to dry. If you do not find branches with enough personality or if you live in an urban area, try bending thick copper (#23051) wire into the shape of branches. Spray paint the wire black. Step 2: Fill a large urn with sand, and then place the branches in the sand. Step 3: Spray moss with a bright green paint; allow to dry. Use the moss to cover the sand in the urn.
