1. Choose a branch. You’ll want a fairly sturdy one with enough sprigs to hang plenty of cards. Dry is good—but not so dry the twigs snap off when you add a little weight.

Optional: Spray paint the branch and let it dry completely. Full coverage or spray lightly to add a little bit of shimmer.

2. Wrap bakers twine a few times around one end of the branch, and secure with a knot.

3. Repeat this step on the opposite end of the branch—be sure to leave enough slack in the twine to hang it. You can also experiment with where you tie the twine to balance the branch.

4. Cut five (or so) pieces of jute twine into various lengths, for a staggered look. Tie them to the branch about equal distances apart.

5. Use clothespins to attach your cards to the jute twine. Depending on the size of your branch and length of the jute, you should be able to hang multiple cards from each piece of twine.
