This is how it is done

Step 1

Screw three pieces of twigs as feet under the tree trunk slice. Now staple the previously soaked water hyacinth shoots under the tree trunk disc.

Step 2

Twist the loose ends of each of three to four water hyacinth strands together, adding more and more strands until all ends are twisted together.

Step 3

Set the tray filled with watered plugging foam into the "nest", fill the space in between with dry grass, etc., and insert the materials into the plugging foam.
