Here’s a little juniper I collected. Ignoring the wiring (I’m just learning, though I’d take advice on that too), any suggestions on design?
It looks rather weak so I would just let it grow a bit. Once it starts to push out some vigorous shoots you can cut them back a bit. If you just collected it, I would keep it from freezing this year and also keep it from becoming waterlogged if you live in a wet region.
