3-D palm tree
Old 07-28-2007, 09:06 AM
 

I love cardBoard. Its free and sturdy. I used a large box (the kind that furniture comes in) Cut it to the height I wanted. Made several scores on the under side, be careful not to cut all the way through, this allowed me to curve the box to the shape of a trunk. Cover this with crinkled up brown paper. For leaves I cut out large leaves from green butcher paper. Tape or hot glue a wire hanger down the middle then attach this to the trunk by simply punching a whole with the hanger and gluing to secure in place. Bend hanger to shape leaves. Can stand in a pot or be attached to bulletin board. Add coconuts and presto! you have a 3-D palm tree.
