These are scroll sawed trees with real bark.

Approximate Time: 4 - 5 hours



  1. Cut tree shapes to your height and own pattern.
  2. Sand the rough edges.
  3. Drill a hole for the dowel in both the tree shape and the log.
  4. Put glue in holes and add dowel.
  5. Paint the light color on each tree.
  6. Stand up the trees and spray paint (outside) the edges and outer part of tree leaving the lighter color inside.
  7. Find bark from an old branch or purchase from a craft store. Glue on bark. The bark is glued around a cylinder of wood (branch).
  8. Stand and enjoy.
