  1. 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 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.

  2. 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.

OMgosh!!! You sure fooled me!! I thought they were wooden when I first saw them. I thought what a wonderful idea idea for the mantel! And now that I know they are foam, I am sure they will be a wonderful idea for the mantel, as they will work up so fast!! Thanks for always having great crafts!!!

Great and complete instructions make this an easy and fun craft! Has anyone tried this? I think it would be fun to do as a family, one adults do the cutting part! You could really embellish this design further with small plastic or glass ornaments glued on, or use fabric trim ric rac to create garland with little tiny pompoms. Clever idea!
