On a recent road trip to Sydney with a bunch of reprobate mates of mine, we visited a pile of layouts for a good look over. Ideas now abound as we garnered a heap of hints.
One great idea was this tree armature. You can use the flower or seed sprig off of the "Nandina domestica" plant (commonly called Heavenly or Sacred Bamboo).
You just wait until the red berries have set and dropped off and simple - a tree. Just flock it and you are done. They are a nice size and shape.
