Default Manzanita Stump Question

I have a Manzanita stump that is really nice, but the tips of the branches are cut off. This gives the stump an unnatural look.

How can I make the tips of the branches look more natural?

I only have a few ideas.
- break the tips off so that they will not appear to be trimmed or use a knife to trim the tip some
- have the moss, ferns, Anubias, etc. cover the tips. (This reminds me of a Poodle's hair cut. )
- plant the branches heavily and cover the tips

Here is what it looks like. You can see the trimmed tips of its branches.
