I found a very similar single branch at Michaels for about $14.00 plus or minus. I'm installing later this week.

How would you attach the branch to the wall? - In spite of the creative look, the mechanics of attaching the branch would seem to be difficult. Suggestions?

Places to look for a branch like this - Hi there, I've been wanting to use a branch as a curtain rod for a while. I was surprised i wasn't the only! (Beautiful job btw)...but i cant seem to find, i've done all kinds of store, the forest etc...where did you find this? and if you did find it in the forest, is there anything you did to the branch to make sure there are no bugs in there?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

13. A branch can serve as an interesting curtain rod.
Lily Gahagan added this to Best Ways with Branches
An attractive long fallen limb can get a new lease on life as a curtain rod. In this example sheer panels hang from the branch, and a swath of fabric is swept around to form a decorative valance.

Shane D. Inman added this to 8 Wonderfully Creative Window Treatments
Tree branch curtain rod. Bring home a branch from the woods and hang a curtain on it. Utilizing nature can help you save money and add a rustic element to ground your room. Style tip: Spray paint the branch in a coordinating or contrasting color for extra flair.
