Dear Deer

I am really into sticks and twigs this time of year.  Any way that I can use them to dress up and cozy up the inside the better.   I saw this great idea for using twigs at a German site called Das-Rote-Paket.  Do you think if I used Corkscrew Hazel (Corylus avellana “Contorta”)  branches it would look like a gazelle?
