It reminds me of quilling. I think for the trunk I would cut strips length ways and make the bark by attaching the strips in a similar way. Still, yours looks great.

pogo: lol, I did paint each individually. If you're not as committed you could get a different look by spray painting after you've attached them all.... but I really wanted a variety of colors.

ysemine: I thought about cutting them up, but I wanted to stay true to the tubes. lol.


I hope anyone who makes similar trees posts pics so I can see!

This is such an amazing idea! What a great way to recycle, why didn't I ever think of this? I'm going to start saving mine for all sorts of designs!
