    3. Add some arcs or slightly curved triangles at the side for leaves. Have them be different heights and lengths.

    4. Add a few more to make things interesting! Each one can be slightly different. Have some parts overlap.

    5. Add some color! The leaves and stems can go from green to tan and yellowy brown. The cattails part can be brown to yellow and fuzzy.
