After suspending the fixture in our shower it was spray painted it green. Always make sure to ventilate the area, wear a mask, and protect the surfaces you are painting around when you spray paint.
For the base we found a log and cut it up into 3/4-1″ disks. A hole (big enough for the light cord) was drilled in each round.
We drilled a hole from the outside to center of one round so we had a place to feed the cord out of the finished lamp.
The wires were then twisted around the top and sockets of the fixture and positioned to form a tree shape. I made sure to bend the wire to allow clearance for the bulbs. If you can tell we decided to use old green Christmas bulbs! Not only are they leaf shaped but they blend with the fixture much better than standard bulbs.
