Anyone ever build a palm tree? My latest project is building 4 coconut palms for this year's Vacation Bible School, in July. They will go in front of 3 large glass block windows, which will need beach ocean and sky. The theme this year is "Shipwrecked" - rescue from a desert island. I picked up a dozen coconut drinking cups at the dollar tree. Today I bought some 4" & 3" perforated drain pipe, and some quick dry cement. I had a couple small plastic planters in the shape of a barrel & leprechaun treasure pot, that I will use for the base. I will use two plastic posts from a kid's badminton set and two wooden sign posts that I made, to support the base & tree. Maybe top the containers with real coconuts? I hope I don't get stuck, on this Desert Island Project!
