We are busy preparing for The Lion witch and wardrobe and i need help with the trees. We have trees made from foam. The seasons are changing and the bare trees need "instant" leaves. How do i make that happen?

Not sure if it would work, but interchangeable branches? Remove the bare ones, put in the ones with leaves?

How about camouflage netting, most is kind of dull, but you could hit it with a couple of different shades of green spray paint to alter the color and drape it over the bare branches.

Love the camouflage netting idea! I was in a production of Twelfth Night once where the leaves were wrapped around the branches and secured with clips. During intermission the clips were removed and the leaves unrolled and there they were! It was a big tree and it took 3 people the entire intermission to do it.
