Strip any loose bark away from the branches, rinse away any soil, and allow to fully dry indoors next to a radiator.
Gather branches and tape them together at the base. You can cheat a little by using the Westcott Glue Gun and tape to add extra twigs where needed! Cut twine into manageable lengths, and apply the glue, using your Westcott Glue Gun, in a strip along the branch, approximately 1 cm at a time. Wrap twine, then add more glue further along the branch, and so on.
Once branches are fully wrapped, mix the plaster of paris and water into your chosen base. Leave space for decoration once dry, to hide the plaster. Stand branches upright and support against a wall.
Once plaster is fully dry, drizzle some glue to the plaster and add some reindeer moss for decoration. Sand, soil or pebbles are other options.
Finished! Enjoy your new bespoke jewelry tree.
