How to Clean Tree Branches for Indoor Use


The necessary process required for the decoration of the tree branch for indoor purposes is quite simple. We are going to provide you a chronological procedure in this regard. This will be beneficial for learners.

Step One

In this step, you need to select a branch that will work well for indoor decoration. In this case, we recommend choosing a branch that is active in nature. Avoid stems that are wet and soft. It is important to be sincere in this case because choosing the wrong branch can affect the whole decoration. The decoration will be more aesthetically pleasing and long-lasting when you choose the right branch.

Step Two

After you have selected the branch, you will need to process it by arranging a heating chamber. This is necessary in order to properly dry the stem, as exposure to the elements can have a negative impact on the tree’s health. The inner part of the tree must be kept dry, so using mechanized heating is the best way to achieve this.

Step Three

After the curing process has been completed for nearly two months, cracks will begin to form in the branch. At this point, you must stop the curing and begin to detach the bark. This is the first step that should be taken after the curing is finished and it is very important. Many people skip this part, which is unacceptable. Eliminating the bugs that live on the bark will be very beneficial before bringing the branch indoors.

Step Four

After you have taken the bark off the branch, it will have some ridges and outgrowths. You will need to use sandpaper to smooth these down. The sand and polish will restore the surface of the branch. It would be best to use hundred grit sandpaper. This will be much helpful; the curvy and the bumpy parts of the branch can be adjusted in this manner.

Step Five

Now you have to apply a stain to the branch. This is done to bring out the actual feature of the wood. The stain should be involved in such a manner that the excess gets easily dissolved in the wood. The wood will take almost twenty-four hours to soak the stain. At last, you have to use polyurethane coating for the process to get completed. After this, your tree branch is ready for decoration.
