Pool Noodles are the secret to making palm trees. I taped two pool noodles together end to end with duct tape. Then I spray painted them brown. Each tree took about 100 lunch size paper sacks.

The bottom and top bag got taped onto the pool noodle with masking tape and kinda scrunched around to cover up the tape....
