If you want to save money on trees (and other things), do what I say and no one will get hurt. Get in your car and go to two places; Wal Mart and Michael's. If there's no Michael's, any arts and crafts store of size. Wal Mart: go to the fake flower isle and look for a rack full of dried stuff for ornamental use. There you will find something called Caspia. Dozens of potential diciduous trees on every branch. I got no less than 50 out of one pack alone and that was just the green ones. Just spray with matte medium and sprinkle on or dip in foliage. WOW! Next to this (or below) is Create A Craft Floral Moss. Would make great foliage or ground cover too. Michael's (or art supply): go to the modeling clay isle and look on the wall for Rigid Wrap. No this has nothing to do with trees. It's a good plaster gauze to replace the messy towels and plaster used for mountains. half the price of Woodland scenics for the same amount. Go now to the fake flower area and look for what's called Phalaris - this stuff will provide you with dozens of evergreen trees of varied shape - you just have to paint them green along with the matte/foliage combo. There are other dried goodies there too - so look at all of them. In the next isle, look for a little, natural looking hand broom - it's a $1.50 but contains unlimited fibers perfect for tall grasses, weeds or anything else you can think of. That's it for this week! See you on the next episode of Mr. Cheap builds a Railroad. Good Nite!
