Do you upcycle? What about DIY? With a little effort, anyone can get crafty, and surprising things can make for the perfect materials. If you're in need of some inspiration as to what to do with fallen tree branches, then look no further. Your messy yard could help spruce up your decor.

1. Support Your Clothes Naturally

homedit features branches used both beautifully and practically as clothing rods. Making one is as simple as finding a good branch, stripping off the extra twigs, and then suspending it from the ceiling using rope. Then just hook your hangers onto the branch (or drape towels directly over the branch), and you've got useful and natural home decor.  Branches also make wonderful, earthy curtain rods.

2. Eco Shelf

Living Vintage Co showcases projects using branches as shelf brackets. Y-shaped branches provide support and aesthetic flair. You can add a little wilderness to your home while simultaneously taming the mess by adding extra storage! To maximize stability, remember to flatten the side of the branch that rests against the wall and the top of the branch where the shelf rests against it.

3. Light-up Flora

Another elegant idea from Living Vintage Co: a branch floor lamp. You could use a sturdier branch and suspend one large bulb or create a fairytale effect with a cloud of holiday lights in a cluster of twiggier branches. These crafters provide tons of ideas, or you could branch out on your own and create a new design.

4. Chandeliers

As Trendhunter spotlights, there are many ways to make a branch chandelier, from wild bundles of smaller twigs to elegant woven creations. The options are only as limited as your supply of deadwood and your imagination!
