Foil Embossed Tree for Tu B’Shvat

Grow a tree in your home with foil and markers!

I found the idea for this project method when searching the web. We used a print out of the shape of a tree that I modified from a google search. Using the Shivat HaMinim for this project would be very cool as well, if you have patience to glue all the string! We didn’t bother mounting our page to cardboard as the original idea suggested. We also used some cotton twine rather than yarn and hot glue so we didn’t have to wait for the glue to dry. I tried to find a path that would allow for a minimum amount of string cutting, which was around the full perimeter and then a few smaller pieces for the branches. We fed the string directly off the roll, rather than guess at how long of piece we would need.
