Step 5: Hiding the Crimes
We’re almost done…all that’s left to do is mask the imperfections left by splintered wood and screw holes.
I went back out into the forest one more time and gathered various pieces of bark and moss.
I used hot glue to cover any exposed holes and screws with bark and moss.
Also the fragments of moss and bark get embedded into the glue, so if the moss or bark falls off from weathering, little embedded bits of dirt and moss will hide the sheen of the glue if it ever gets exposed.
Another user from Instructables (@LeslieGeee) suggested using brown-colored silicone or DAP instead of hot glue as a more permanent solution – Thanks Leslie!
