    That looks pretty real to me. I'd say the only potential downside might be from sap if it was freshly cut. Go for it and post a photo so we can see what you come up with.

    I like it, don't have to sweep/vacume up pine needles after the season.

    actually that is not a real branch it is from a 2 year old better homes and gardens article and is manufactured. however you could do the same with a long fairly straight branch and chosen side branches by drilling holes in the larger branch to fit the smaller branches into however I would spray down the branches with a nice soapy spray and allow them to dry just in case the warmth of the house woke u some little friends

    April E - thanks for the info!! Very clever to drill into the upright branch for the out reaching branches! And thanks for the history on the pic!!

    I love to collect leaves and branches to make crafts. I let them sit in the sun for a day on the patio. Look for insects ,loose seeds , as well as possible disease before bringing inside. I use watered down bleach and spray and dry well before bringing inside. If sap is an issue you can cover the seepage area with glue and dab a little paint over it.
