  • Sturdy cylindrical container

  • Tree bark

  • Scissors

  • Wax twine


  1. Choose a container that matches the height of the bark.

  2. Wrap the piece of bark around the container. For a more finished look, trim the bottom of the bark with scissors to make an even line.

  3. Secure bark by wrapping wax twine several times around the container. Knot and snip the ends of the twine.
