Step 1: Tools
Hammer - hand clamp - some pliers - U nails - (extension) flat wood boring bit - iron wire - scrap wood - secateur
Step 2: Start to cut
Twigs are about 6mm to 10mm in diameter.
Once you have a lot of twigs, start cutting them about the same size (depending on the height you want).
Step 3: Connecting the twigs
Take a long length of iron wire about three times the circumference of the base.
Fold it in half and start by twisting it around the first twig.
* Between the first and second twig I did about 2 or 3 twists. Will be clear later on.
Make sure you have about the same distance above and at the bottom. Also calculate a little bit what the middle of your base is, so attaching later on will be easier.
Continue by adding twigs and twisting the wire. I always did one firm twist. I tried with just crossing the wire, but found out that one twist was better
It works best when you do both sides about the same time.
This is where the hand clamp and scrap wood come in handy.
Step 4: Let's twist again!
Keep adding twigs and keep twisting.
Also keep in mind to align 1 side of the twigs. So later they will fit nicely according to the bottom.
Once your halfway or further on, it's nice to check the length together with the base.
