Create that wintery look with sparkling branches. All you need is few dead branches, glitter (silver, gold or rose gold any colour would do), paint brush, silver spray paint and glue. Firstly, prune your branches to desired shape. Now coat the entire branch with the silver spray paint. Let it dry.  Use a paint brush to apply glue on the branch and then sprinkle the glitter on the branch. Make sure you completely cover the branch with the glitter. For this last step, place a newspaper or cookie sheet under the branch so that you can reuse the excess glitter that falls on the sheet. You can place these sparkling branches in wine bottles or vase.
