Festive Halloween Tree Made From A Contorted Filbert

Well the down side is that my Lauder’s Walking stick, also called a contorted filbert, finally died this year due to the filbert blight (Anisogramma anomata). On the up side, I was able to use some of the bush to make a neat Halloween tree. I think it looks so cool. I “planted” it in a pot, added rocks to hold the stem in place, and decorated it with paper bats. I love the twisted branches!

The bat shapes are glued to clothes pins so they can be arranged on branches and other items.
