Copycat - ZGallerie Branches in Pot

I love shopping at ZGallerie.  There are beautiful pieces and accessories I really enjoy.  When things are on sale, it makes perfect sense to purchase them.  Even better yet, when  items are on clearance.


Their description is as follows:
Our stunningly sculptural Gold Branch depicts the refined structure of a deciduous tree cast in the elegance of a metallic gold finish. The gnarled and twisted branches lend visual interest and are wired and flexible for your arranging pleasure. The tree is set in a modernly inspired rectangular vessel with gold pebbles adorning the surface.
They want $139.95 for each set of branches...... Available in Gold, Silver and White.


I decided to  create the branches they now sell on their site.  They also offer them in white and silver.  I think black would be great for some Halloween fun and drama.

I started with some manzanita branches.  One of our friends lives further up the mountain and they have plenty of manzanita and pine cones everywhere. I sent my husband and our friend off to cut some.  I gave him a picture, so they could see what kind of branches I wanted.

I shopped at our local Ross store and found a rectangle metal box....perfect for spray painting and adding the branches.  And then we went to Home Depot and found some perfect little plastic planter boxes.
These boxes measure 15 inches x 7.99 inches. They run about $4.98 each.  They are easy to spray paint. I used Rust-Oleum Metallic spray paint for the box and branches.  The cost is $3.76 each.
I used styrofoam we had on hand.  I like to keep some around for projects.  I cut some pieces to fit in nicely in the planter box.  After I spray painted the branches, I cut them to fit and pushed  them down into the styrofoam.  


For the filler, I used:

White Marble Accent Stones, 32-oz. Bags from the Dollar store.   I added them to cover the styrofoam and then I spray painted them all in place.



Here they are sitting on the new bachelor's chest in the Glam bedroom.  The bedroom is almost finished.  I need to paint the mirror and find some new bedding.  You can see a glimpse of the crystal chandelier.




I think I may cut the height down a bit, so they are not extremely tall.  They will appear a little more fuller then. I plan to use some for a tablescape or two.


So total cost for this project  is :
2 cans of Rust-oleum Metallic Gold Spray paint  - $3.76  x 2
I planter box                                                             $4.98
1 bag of white Marble accent stones -                      $1.00
Styrofoam                                                                  FREE
Manzanita Branches -                                                FREE
                                                                                   _______
                                                                                   $13.50 + tax

Much better than the $139.95

  15. i never believed in love spell but when it turned out that love spell was my last hope, I gave it a try because my lover stopped talking to me, after begging and pleading with him I realized that nothing was working out, he left me to meet another girl, i had no choice than to ordered a reunite love spell from omoudespelltempl@gmail.com to help me get my lover back, after the spell was cast, the Results was fantastic, I never expected what i saw, I’m so grateful i came across this spell caster, My love left his other girlfriend and we came back together
