Next we add one branch each, wrapping our base around, using pieces of wire, we tightly tighten the frame, gradually increasing it in volume.

It is important that the willow branches are thin and flexible, about the same thickness! It will be easier and more convenient for you to form the suspension frame!

Next, decorate the reinforced frame with tinsel, tightly winding it onto the base

Choose the front side of the suspension, the view of which will be below, distribute the tinsel evenly and fasten the berries accordingly

Spread short twigs in the shape of a future star
