Tree or shrub prunings
Broom handle-sized fallen tree branch
Wire cutters

Using the wire cutter carefully cut wire and use them to hold the prunings together in small bunches.

Layer the small bunches onto the main branch at the end, making sure to wire each one.

Author's note: Check for sturdiness as you go, as I had to do this in several layers for them to hold tight.
