- Wooden block
- T-square ruler
- Pencil
- Clamps
- Electric drill with boring bit
- Sheet of plastic
- Disposable gloves
- Wood stain
- Paintbrush
- Paper towel
- Chicken wire
- Wire cutters

Instructions
1. Use the T-square ruler to find the center of the wooden block, and draw a small pencil dot to mark the spot.
2. Secure the wood to the work surface with the clamps, and use the boring bit to drill a hole over the dot that is about an inch deep. Brush off any excess sawdust.
3. Lay down a piece of plastic to protect the work surface, put on a pair of disposable gloves and coat the block in wood stain. Wipe off excess stain with a paper towel.
4. Cut the chicken wire into a shape with five "branches" as seen in the video.
5. Wearing gloves to protect your hands from scratches, roll up each branch of the chicken wire to create a tree shape with a trunk and four branches.
6. Cut a length of wire and bend it into a tight coil with about an inch of straight wire at the end.
7. Insert the wire into the chicken wire shape and place the coil in the hole drilled in the wooden block.
