You can just stack the twigs in a ladder configuration
Or lash the twigs with ripped flax (see Tutorial below)
The tiny little ladder will not bear any weight so I made a simple diagonal lashing-inspired knot.
Lashing is a great way to tie two sticks together that cross at an angle between 45 and 90 degrees. Start by crossing the sticks at a diagonal
Start lashing the two sticks together

Cinch down the diagonal wrappings with three frapping turns
Tie off the grass to secure
Cut away the dangling grass pieces
