1⁄35Pine Trees made easy
Step Five: When youíre satisfied with the look of the trunk (or dowel), then take a brown mixture of paint (you decide on how dark a color you want the bark to be) and paint the dowel completely. I used an oak stain color made by Delta from Home Decor. They make different stain‐like colors that match real life wood. When done, place a small amount of white glue on the end of the ferns stem and insert it into the hole. To make sure you are satisfied with the look and position of each fern, view the tree at different angles until you are satisfied with the look. If you are not satisfied then just remove them and place them into another hole. Touch up the areas where excess glue might have oozed out with your brown paint. You can go all out and actually paint the branch where the small ferns leaves are situated with brown paint to represent the bark of the branches itself but that would probably be over‐doing it. I painted some of the branches but left some the way it was. Itís so small that hardly anyone would take notice of it. Youíll really have to look closely. ‐ Well that is it. Thatís all there is to it. Now, that wasnít too complicated. Have Fun!
