TREE BRANCH OMER COUNTER

Featured on my previous post about Stylish Ways for Counting the Omer, I can’t get enough of this tree branch from Design Shimmer. If you love rustic style, this branch will fit right in. Me thinks a simple white ribbon can also mark the day and be a tad easier.

‘TREE OF LIFE’ BUNDLES

I like the double meaning you get from this counter being placed in a tree or tree branches. Since counting the omer is it’s own treat, the candy can be left out and a message placed inside. Detailed instructions are at Design Mom.
