• The 42 oz. container I used was 9.5” tall, so I made marks at 1.5”, 4”, 5.5” and 8” down. I also made four sets of marks around the container so that I could keep the foam strips level as I glued.
• Hot glue foam around the top, bottom and middle of the oatmeal container, keeping the strips flush with the top and bottom and the center band level.
• Before covering with the newspaper, I added a few drops of water to my Mod Podge to thin it out just a touch to help it really soak into the heavier newsprint. 
• Making sure to get plenty of Mod Podge along the lip of the foam strips so that the paper sticks well.
• Make sure you line up your newspaper seams over top of the foam seams in the back or you’ll end up with lots of seams all over the place. 
• Paint
• For the filler, use some tall branches.
