Birch poles can be purchased online. If you want to use whatever sturdy branches you find in your backyard instead, make sure they are straight.
- 4 birch poles of similar size
- Drill and bit

Trim birch poles to an equal length, tall enough to accommodate standing guests.
With drill, create a hole for a screw eye at top center of each pole.
Twist in screw eyes.
Place a bucket at each corner of space to be decorated. (Buckets should be placed at least every six feet.)
Center a pole in each bucket and add gravel to stabilize.
With zip ties, attach garland of lights to screw eyes, as shown.
