Guys, this was so easy it was disgusting, and it was so tasty it was brilliant. I\'ll be doing more for sure...

Jungle Tree (http://i46.photobucket.com/albums/f118/RonJonesLP/Scenery%20Stage%20By%20Stage/Scenery.jpg)

I simply cut the top off a Pineapple, and glued it to a LOTR base I had spare and boom. Add a little spray varnish to seal it off and I\'m done.

Suffice to say the Pineapple was delicious and I shall be adding more to the collection soon...

*EDIT*

Also, one more tip for ya. Before gluing the plant to a base dry it out first the juice stops the glue from curing. Use tissue paper and then once dry paint a layer of PVA and let that dry before attaching to the base. This seals it off.

just curious will that rot over time? I once used grape stalks as trees and they just went a bit funny

I\'m going to varnish them all over to seal the air out, to stop that happening. Should be ok.

well good news is if they do start to go funny you will just have to eat more pineapples!

You may be able to seal it with wax. i think that would keep it from rotting.
