Hand-Carved Pine Trees
Skill Level: Beginner
Print templates on cardstock and cut out. Pin the templates to the foam sheets and trace with black marker.
Cut out the trees using the foam cutter or serrated knife.
Following the package instructions, carefully carve ripples in the edges of the tree fronts using the StyroCutter® Plus. This gives a carved wood look to the foam trees. Also carve ripples into the edges of the trunks.
Paint the trees green and the trunks medium brown as shown and let dry.
To give the trees a snow-covered look, lightly brush white paint over the green, letting the green show through. Repeat over tree trunks with dark brown paint to add dimension.
Glue craft sticks into the bottom of the tree trunks leaving 1” sticking out. Glue the other end into the center of the foam discs to display.
