Pine trees made out of camping mat

In the area surrounding Pikku’s house i need atleast 20 pine trees. After a few days of thinking I decided to make the trees out of green camping mat that I had in my basement from a previous project.

Disney-pine and scabies trees

The idéa was not to create perfect Disney-trees but thin, uneaven pine trees like the ones you usually see up here in the north.

I had planned to make the trunk from garden wire, but apparently Coop doesn’t carry it anymore. I couldn’t find it anywhere else either, not even in my basement, although I remember I had a roll there. Instead I used aluminium wire that I glued tiny strips of camping mat on with contact cement.

Finally I add a thick layer of white acrylic paint as snow and frost.
