DIY branch curtain rods

My awesome Grandma said she would make curtains for our shop. She just needed the dimensions of our curtain rods. …What curtain rods?! I began looking online for “normal” diameters of curtain rods. I accidentally clicked on images in google and was SO thrilled I did! A picture came up with an awesome branch instead of an actual curtain rod. I wanted them.

So that’s what we did. I sent Josiah into one of the many forests here in Austin (ok, I went too, it was fun). We only picked up branches that had naturally fallen and weren’t moldy. We came back with 8ish awesome branches a little longer than 4 feet each. We picked our 3 favorites and Josiah hung them up for us. Now we have awesome branch curtain rods!

EVERYONE comments on them in the shop and loves them! My favorite part? FREE, handmade, and DIY!

    I used a branch on the outside (public) hall window in our condo 10 years ago on a whim. I might change the curtains, but I won’t change the branch because it’s so much more interesting than any “actual” rod.

    I love this idea of using the tree branch artistically. These are looking like the actual curtain rods. Thanks for sharing,

    I’m going out the back to the bush and get a ghost gum branch. I’m in Australia so some nice gum tree branches might look good like this.

    1.Would Command hooks work to hang the branch?
    2. I am SO doing this for my sons dorm!!!Did you paint or spray something clear on the sticks, or leave them rough and natural?
