Several people asked about the straw in my new barn. Where did I get it? What is it made from?Here's the answer: manila file folders!
This the ultimate cheap and easy prop. Simply cut the folder into smaller pieces, then cut those pieces into tiny strips.
This is a slow, tedious task, but if you stick with it, you will have enough straw to properly bank your stalls.
Hay can be made in the same way, just be sure to paint your manila folders an appropriate shade of green...
before cutting them to pieces.
Happy shredding, everyone!
