How to make Iced Branches:
Iced Branches via Save on Crafts
Place a sheet of newspaper down for a work area. Pour a pile of Colorfill Diamonds (and German glass glitter for extra sparkle) in the center.
Place tacky glue on the branches and smooth it out along the branch(not in big clumps). Then fold the paper slightly then roll the branch in the Diamonds (and glitter). Let set for about 45 minutes. Now work on the opposite side of the branch. Wait 1/2 hour and you have ice covered branches. Easy as that!

Think of the possibilities! Mantles, vases, porches...the list goes on. Don't limit yourself to branches, this process would also work on decorative balls or sparkly pinecones, just to name a few.
