Step 1: Collecting Parts for Your Tree
We when't on a family outing in the woods trying to find a good size branch(already dead) to use as the main trunk of the tree. This year we wanted a little bonsai feel, so we picked a "trunk" that had lots of bends. We also collected branches of various sizes to attach to the "trunk" branch. Note; I took this photo after we had started assembling, so the "trunk" branch is not in this photo.
Step 2: Assembling Your Tree
After mounting the main "trunk" its time to add the branches. Heres where the extra eyes come in to play. Start with the larger ones one person moves the branch up and down and/or around the "trunk" until they get the ok from the extra eyes. Don't be afraid to switch branches if you can't make it work. You may need to make a cut at the end of the branch so it will be easy to attach, or you can pass it buy the back and screw it that way. I used a countersink bit so the wood would not split.
Repeat this process until you feel that there are enough branches for the look you are trying to achieve.
