    You will need to get a drill bit long enough to drill down the center for the cord to come through. You will need a solid base to keep it standing. Either a pot with cement or a large base. Please post it when you ate done!

    Hi Jennifer. I'm Cindy. This sort of decorating gives lots of drama to a room. I'm assuming that you already have the tree branch. I like the idea of using cup hooks to attach the lights. I have seen cup hooks that have a small flap to enclose the cord. That would be great for this project. You may be able to stand the branch up using a Christmas Tree stand. Just put a piece of fabric to cover the stand. And, lastly, I recommend that you put an Up-Light under the branch. This will create light and shadows in the room and ceiling. Very dramatic. You can purchase one at Home Depot, Lowe's or Menard's. Approx $15. I would love to see your results here on Home Talk. Good luck Jennifer.
