Roll two tapering down towards one end sausages (one longer one shorter)*. Roll a few small tapering down towards one end sausages. Leave them to dry for a few minutes. They should hold the shape quite well but shouldn’t be very dry. Trim the wider ends at an angle and stick them with a small amount of glue as shown in the photo.

* I used 7 mm and 11 mm balls of brown flower paste. I trimmed the branches quite a lot later.
