Decorating With Cotton Branches

You may have noticed in the last few months that cotton stems and cotton bolls have been very popular in home decor and wedding decor. Well, I’m loving the trend, too. A few weeks ago at a vintage market we participated in we decided to sell some cotton bolls and we sold about 70 pieces.

Decorating with cotton. Cotton stems.

We purchased ours directly from a North Carolina farm called Cottonman. It arrived beautiful and clean and we were so happy with the product. So, because of our success I wanted to gather some ideas on ways to use cotton stems and cotton bolls.

Placing a bunch of stems in a container is beautiful and the most common way to display them. (buy here)

But, I wanted to see what other ideas were out there. I love this Christmas tree that is full of cotton. It adds such a warmth.

The way the cotton was used with the florals in this display is so gorgeous. Cotton doesn’t have to be displayed alone.

I am a former Army wife and we spent 15 years traveling around the world. It was such a thrill to have seen so many places and meeting lifetime friends. I spent many years working in the craft industry and love getting together with friends and creating. I have a lifelong love of thrift shops, antiques, and yard sales.
