Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Materials Needed
What do you need to make a pine tree:
-sisal-rope green (see next step)
-iron wire (the flower shop)
-board with a hook and something to hold it in place.
Step 2: Coloring the Rope
To begin you must have good rope. After some research I'll find out that Sisal-rope works the best.
But sisal is yellow / white and a tree is dark green.
Fortunately, you can color sisal-rope with DYLON-fabric paint.
Because Sisal rope have two strand's, you have to get them apart.
For the rest just follow the instruction of the paint.
Let dry overnight.
Step 3: Preparing the Workbench
Attached the plank with the hook on the workbench.
Clamp a second hook in a screw machine.
Put two iron wires between the hooks.
Step 4: Preparing the Rope
Cut the rope in smal pices (about 3 cm). Remember it is scale 1/160 that means that 1 cm is about 1.6 meter in real sice.
Put the pices of rope between the iron wires.
Step 5: Round and Round
Then comes the fun part.
Just put the screw machine ON and when the wire snaps, you ready.
Step 6: Finish It All
Cut the trees separately and cut the branches into a nice shape
That's all ..
Have fun. Comments are welcome..........
