Print out either of these tree trunk templates on brown A4 or Letter size cardstock:
You can also draw your own tree trunk on brown cardstock or construction paper.
Choose the color and size of your background paper. Use 12" x 18" construction paper if you printed out the coconut tree template or Tree Trunk Template #6 (large tree trunk with flat base). If you went for Tree Trunk Template #2 (tree trunk with flat base), a 9" x 12" sheet of construction paper or cardstock will do.
Use craft foam letters, alphabet stickers, draw and cut out your own letters, or print out the alphabet letter sets below. The letters do not have to be all green, you can make them as colorful as you like.
For the coconut tree, create some coconuts by cutting circles or letter O's.
