1. Trim birch branch down to selected length, I cut mine to 4 feet.

2. Cut a 3.5 feet piece of twine and tie it on about 3 inches in from each end of the branch. This is what you will use to hang your branch on the wall.

3. Cut a variety of yarn into roughly 8 foot long pieces and fold in half. Pre-cutting the yarn will save you lots of time!

4. To attach the yarn strands, bring the loop of yarn behind the branch, pull around the front and then place the ends through the loop, pulling tight to create a slip knot. Create your color blocking pattern from here. This will give you a better idea of how much yarn you need to cut for each portion!

5. Grab a cup of tea or a glass of wine and begin attaching yarn strings in sequence from one end to the other.

6. Add some knots or braids; be sure to do so before you trim the yarn, otherwise those pieces will end up too short!

7. Once the branch is filled, finish by trimming to your desired length or shape. Not all yarn will line up, but I found it easier to decide on my pattern at the end when I could see what areas were longer or more filled than others.

8. Finish by hanging it up and enjoy it as a bridal shower, bachelorette or ceremony backdrop.
