That’s why it is a refreshing change when we incorporate natural beauty and elements found in the wild. This DIY involves upcycling tree trunks and branches. With a little time and effort, it’s not overly hard to create gorgeous centrepieces that add unconventional flare to any room or green space in and around your home.You can create whatever design you want with tiles or broken glass.
