  2. Then, using white acrylic paint and a medium-sized paint brush, I painted the mailing paper that covered the roll.
  3. Next, I took a small paint brush and added touches of black paint and blended it out to create light and dark streaks.
  4. Then, again using Mod Podge®, I added plain white wrapping paper around the entire roll to add some texture.Faux Wood Birch Logs
