To make the branch swings, it only takes a few basic supplies. You will need a saw to cut down the branches to the perfect length.When making looking for your branches, try to find straight ones that are similar in diameter.

Drill a hole for the rope. You will want to use a small drill bit to form a pilot hole and then a larger bit to drill completely through the branch.

Insert the rope and tie a secure knot.I used a piece of masking tape at the end of the rope to make the threading easier and to prevent fraying.

    Love the idea! However I am curious do the animals sit/stick to the branches?
