The Doc I work with is going out of town today. He won't be back in the office until Tuesday. I asked him if I could have some "time off for good behavior" and he said, "yes." Now I have four days off to work on my projects! :D
This morning I decided to try to make a pine tree. This great model railroad site that has lots of tutorials and photos of trees for inspiration. I decided to combine some techniques I found and try to make a pine tree with a bamboo stick and felt.
After I cut the circles out of felt, I covered them on both sides with fine turf using spray adhesive.
One of the railroaders used green Scotch Brite pads instead of felt. Very effective. I didn't have one of those so I used what I had on hand.
When the circles were dry, I cut little slits in the circles for branches and then glued them to the trunk.
My little tree doesn't look real, but I think it's kinda cute. :D
Hope you have fun today!
I hope to actually get something done on my garden center!
