In Scandinavia during Christmastime, it’s traditional to suspend a branch from the ceiling and adorn it with ornaments. We’ve put a springy twist on the idea by creating paper leaves and flowers and attaching them to a hanging branch over an outdoor dining table.
Cut out leaf shapes from the different shades of green paper. Vary the sizes so your final arrangement will appear more organic.
Fold one end of the leaf in half. This is where you will glue it onto the branch.
Twist the opposite end of the leaf a bit to give it more shape.
To make the flower, cut a rectangle from the red crepe paper.
Stretch out the rectangle pieces of paper.
Fold the rectangle in half but do not crease. Make a bubble of sorts.
Start rolling the end of the paper into a spiral until you reach the end of the paper.
Turn it upside down and glue the end. Glue the sides if necessary.
Glue the flowers onto the branch. Group them together at the ends of the branches to create a more life-like branch.

Hang the canopy of branches with fishing wire.
