How to make an easy vine for VBS

How to Make a Vine

This is a simple vine I made for a jungle VBS.

I started out with some Backer Rod.  This stuff is used for filling large gaps before caulking.  It makes  it so you don't have to waste a large amount of caulk on a big hole.  It feels like a very long and thin pool noodle.

I got some green fun foam and cut it into the shape of leaves.

A whole bunch of leaves.

Next I used a pencil to make a hole in the backer rod.  I pushed it in at an angle so the leaf would go that direction.

Next I put a drop of glue in the hole.

I rolled the leaf's bottom end and pushed it into the hole.

I also found that I could use the pencil to push it deeper into the hole.

Lather, rinse, repeat.

You could have leaves pointing in all different directions if you want.
 I am OCD (I like to call it CDO that way they are all in alphabetical order) so all of mine are going the same direction.

Ta Da!
