yarning a branch

i'm working on a project in noah's room.  i've been wanting to do something with branches for a while now, and just as i had a really good stack of them built up, my hubby, unaware of my intentions, threw them away! i was a little heart broken, but i found a few more good ones and decided to make a "learning tree" for noah's room. i've already hung felt leaves on the branches, and i plan on adding various kinds of felt fruit to them as well.  the tree will hang above his work table where sits his new globe and several other learning toys. 

i'm working on the trunk right now.  here's what i'm doing:

i'm using a thicker branch to serve as the trunk of the tree, and i'm wrapping it in yarn from the vanna white collection that i found at joann fabrics.  i got the idea of wrapping branches in yarn from a dear genevieve episode, but i've decided not to wrap the actual branches of my little tree, as that would take me a lifetime. 
i'll report back on the finished product!
