Tree Tutorial

    Newer Older

    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.

    Edit: Here is a link to a photo with small leaves woven: www.flickr.com/photos/eilonwy77/7238222882/in/photostream

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

      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.

      Hmm, I've got a bunch of apples as well... I may have to do an orchard.

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