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

What about felt and using starch to make it just a bit stiffer?

Thanks for your thought. A friend suggested I use fabric (green shower curtain) and florist tape under the fabric to stiffen the under side.

I thought about using fabric and applying pipe cleaner to the under side of the fabric.

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!

Use coffee cans. Stack them on top of each other and cover with brown paper. for the top leaves, cut out of green paper and tape to the middle of the top can. Make your tree high enough so no one can see the tape or glue a fruit over the tape.

It was pretty helpful, but it will take much longer than I thought.

You need to add pictures so I can understand more clearly.
