    Ready_Twig_TreesGive a mantelpiece a festive woodland feel with a rustic tree decoration, made from berried branches, willow and forest-floor bounty.

    Take 2 long, sturdy twigs and join together with a hot glue gun, then wrap around wreath wire for added support. Starting from the top, cut two short twigs of equal length. Keep going with the twigs getting gradually longer until you have two triangular shapes, as shown – make sure to leave enough trunk to push into a pot. Fix the twigs to the trunk using a hot glue gun, leaving a finger space between them. Leave to cool.

    Cover a terracotta pot with hessian and tie on twiggy star decorations with red ribbon. Push oasis floral foam inside, followed by your tree. Top with moss and berries, then decorate the twigs with red twine.
