Once you’ve collected enough you can line them up vertically and use plywood on top and bottom to keep them together.
These branches are hung down from a larger branch to make them look like windchimes. This is one of my favorite DIY wooden decorations for the garden because not only can you create them yourself, it is not that hard to do as well.
It does need a lot of checking and looking from afar to make sure you have the exact look you want. But, from there, it is all about hanging the branches down so that they are distanced from one another in a lovely way.
Twig Lattice Support
This twig lattice support is perfect if you have climbers. They give them something to cling onto to satisfy their climbing habit.
I addition to being functional, you can design the twigs however way you want. Here, the lattice resembles a ladder. But, it can easily take the shape and form of something just a lovely depending on the surface you place it against.
