Does anyone have any ideas on how to make palm tree leaves? Fabric is too limp and cardboard is a bit too stiff.

Is this just for a temporary decoration? If so, I'd make them from newspaper. Use a couple sheets for the leaves and roll some for the veins in the leaves for support (glue on), then spray paint them dark green.

We are planning a beach party and want to make some palm trees to put out side by the beach area. Does anyone have a simple idea to make these trees?

Thank you for all your help!

Suggestion: for the base of the palm tree use brown lunch bags cut the bottom off of them and slide them down the cardboard pole and scrunch them together, takes about 25 to cover a 8ft pole. Looks realistic and I recommend it!
