Tree Tutorial

This is the basic form of the three largest trees in the Pool Party. Here's how I made it. See the comment below for instructions and links to larger images.

 

There are other methods of making trees with this technique. I'll talk about some of those later.

 

I had a request to show better how to make these trees. I do hope that this is easy to follow.

    Very nice tree, I've always loved building trees, and this is a very clever way. I am so going to steal it! ;)
  • Duncan Adkins 3y

    Built one! I couldn't get the leaves weaver as tight as you, so I used an extra foliage peice on top, instead of the three pronged leaf.

    So how many leaf pieces do I need per tree? 12? Or 13?
