I made this for a wooden dowel ad branches from a cedar tree I have in my yard.
I think new time, I'll look in the garden section at LOwes and find some better plants to use.

It looks great but, won't the cedar eventually dry out, turn brown and get brittle? Not trying to rain on your parade or anything, or does cedar stay green and soft? It would be a shame if in a few weeks it looked dead.

The tree looks great!

Next time, look at places like ac moore, micheals etc for dried caspia. It's perfect scale trees, looks like evergreens, and doesn't change color. It's usually used for a filler in flower arrangements.

You'll be making forests in no time!
