Step 2: Prune A Tree or Go Foraging
I happen to have a massive oak tree in my front yard that needed pruning so I sent my husband up on the ladder to get it done and save some good branches in the process! You will want a sturdy branch with a 'V' shape in it. If the branch is flimsy it will get increasingly smaller when you try and wind it with yarn so make sure it's strong.
Choose the branch you want and trim off excess twigs that you don't need or want using pruning sheers or a small hand saw. Use caution when using any trimming tool. They are very sharp and don't care what they cut.....including fingers. If you are doing this project with a child an adult should do the trimming.
Clean branch accordingly if you notice any bird or animal poo. That is not welcome in the finished piece!!
