Garden gate 3

cut twigs to appropriate length (my gate was just under 2 foot and i could get 3 lengths out of each twig). use glue gun to attach twigs to frame. place twigs in 2-3 layer to make the gate opaque.

    This has the potential of looking really awesome, I can see it in a natural zen garden kind of setting. Sadly, the messy unfinished patio area pictured in the final result photo doesn’t show its true potential.
