pile of branches (the straighter the better)

Now, the star I saw on Pinterest was made with bigger, thicker branches so they stopped with just the outline which is also very pretty.
I just had something else in mind and luckily, my husband was on board to help me again! It was much more fun doing it with him.
Once you have your frame in place and held with wire, then you just start layering your branches on top of one another. They do not have to be the same length or size because you will fasten them with wire as well. I personally, like the more organic look.
And last, wrap your star with lights, hang it, plug it in and sit back and enjoy it's beauty!
