Twigs & Twine

So I was looking at some blogs today and saw a lot of people using regular old twigs in their crafts. How cool is that?   I saw some twig trees used for decorating and jewelry displays and thought I would give it a try. I got a plain jar (actually it is a spaghetti sauce jar that I scrubbed out but shhh don't tell) and decorated it by wrapping some twine around the top & bottom and also mod podged  some cute scrap paper. I added the twigs and it just didn't do it for me. I thought the twine was cute on the jar so I started wrapping the twigs in twine and LOVED it!! I did the "jar o twigs" and then also made a cross. All with some twigs, twine, Mod Podge and Glittery Nail Polish!! Woohoo! I love it! For the cross I also tediously made the little circle for the middle :) What do you think?
