Cheep Deciduous Trees

Cheep Deciduous Trees

Sage brush trunk, WS 178 Polyfiber stretched as thin as possible and glued to trunk, spray adhesive (hair spray didn't work well), then parsley flakes (dark green) or real poplar leaves (light green) shredded in blender and sprinkled on.
How-to requested by viewer. Sage brush trunk grown locally by mother nature,
Woodland Scenics #178 Polyfiber for branches glued with white glue. Tease the fiber
out as thin as possible (thinner than shown here, these have a bit too much of a cotton candy appearance). After the glue is dry, spray the tree with an adhesive. I'd recommend 3M Super 77, not cheap hair spray (not adhesive enough) and not a thicker spray adhesive (too ropy). Leaves are parsley flakes (dark green) and real leaves (light green). I've since rebuilt these trees by teasing the fiber out more and using Noch #8020 medium green leaf flock.
