In this step I decided to use a sticker paper but it's optional you can use normal paper and then glue it to the glass.You can use a reference picture for this step.

Step 4: Painting

you can paint it then glue it to the glass too.I prefered to this like that cause it was easier for me.Basically you are going to glue the branches after cutting them and then you are going to paint them.Then wait until the paint is dry and clean it with a toothpick.

Step 5: Measure
