Brochure Trees

Today I will share with you my trees made from old Avon brochures. (more trash!) Did the traditional magazine folds. Again my grandson Ryan was lending a helping hand!

When the folding was done we had this. (using 3 brochures cause I did not want skinny trees)

This photo shows only 2 brochures not the 3 I ended up using for each one.
Took them outside & spray painted them green. This took maybe three coats.
(sorry pics of painted trees came out blurry but it was not even finished so you were not missing anything anyway)
I then used some spray on Santa Snow & now the trees look like they have been lightly snowed upon. (spray on snow is the snow we usually always only have in Florida)

Maybe I will add a star to the tops. We shall see. You will see these guys at a later date with some other things I am making from trash type stuff.

Don't forget to leave a comment. I love hearing from cool folks like yourself.
