Easy
I created this tree entirely from driftwood that I collected this summer while camping and fishing and just being out on walks. I used a 0.25cent garage sale find plant stand as the main support structure. To be able to enjoy this tree and mother natures free gifts for many years I did not glue or nail anything together I interlocked the wood so I can disassemble it, it will look different every year. At the end of the season we play jenga taking it apart .

at the beginning I kept lightly pushing on it to see what moved and often sticks locked themselves into a secure position.

    Loving it too much!! I made a small one with regular wood, 1x4, 1x3, 1x2…etc. and love it! I think I’d put one like yours outdoors and add bird nests, faux birds, leaves, acorns, pine cones, etc.
