Super easy project! A fallen tree in the neighborhood provided plenty of branches to choose from. I removed most of the imperfections, all of the leaves, leaving only specific knots and "wishbone" areas. While the paint on the two twigs dried, Gadora fastened the wall hooks to the horizontal piece. Copper wire was twisted to fasten the branches to each other and eventually to the top piece. Voila. 30-minutes, and you have a new way to display your jewels.
