To make this you need:

You need 9 long paper towel rolls

3 toilet paper rolls

Green and Brown Acrylic Paint

Red and Yellow Foam Sheets

Pom Poms (all colors)

Black Sharpie Marker



Hot Glue Gun



The cardboard Paper Towel Rolls are about 11 inches long. Measure every 3 inches and cut at that point. There will be 2 inches of green tube that you can set aside for another craft another day.
