How to make fake trees for your train track

Posted on March 6th, 2010 by engineer in Train Track Ideas


Adults and Children alike love to make model train tracks. Many people wonder how to create tiny fake trees for their models. There are several ways to create these small trees. You will want to make trees that replicate live trees. It is relatively easy to do.

Miniature trees can be made from pieces of fake foliage. These tree replicas are made of several different materials such as silk, fabric, and plastic. Colors are important in making replicas of live plants. You should purchase your foliage in different shades of green and for seasonal trees you should purchase your foliage in shades of orange, yellow, and red. When purchasing, make sure you buy small foliage. Once purchased you will be able to cut small trees out of the foliage. It’s as simple as that.

Another way to make fake tree’s for your model train is to make them out of modeling clay. This clay is easy to work with. To start the process you would take a piece of your brown modeling clay and form it into a tree trunk with limbs. Leaves can be made by pressing the modeling clay of your
color choice into a leaf form. Once you remove the clay replica of your leaf, you can then mold your leaf onto your tree limbs. Tools can be used to make designs on your clay replica if you desire.

It is possible to purchase all of the materials for small foliage and clay trees for your model train at major craft and department stores. You can also purchase these products online if it is more convient for your project.
