I wonder if it'll be too slippery to keep the string in place though? Maybe you'll just have to make it really tight at the start. If you make it, post pictures!

Thank you! It's really a fake branch, but I would've loved to have used a real one. I just happened to have that lying around. If anyone does use a real branch, just make sure it's pliable. You wouldn't want it to snap!

This looks fantastic. It's such a nice idea using a branch as a frame, it makes it seem even more magical.
