O Christmas Tree, DIY Wall Decor
Sweet and Sassy Treasures
- Base Coat Your Board
The first step is painting the plywood board with a coat of white mineral-based paint.
- Add Your Background Decoupage
Once the paint dries, lay the foundation with decoupage paper, using a decoupage medium of your choice.
- Set up a Frame for Your Tree
Using scrap lumber, build a wooden frame around where the Christmas tree will be placed.
- Cast Your Tree
Create a detailed Christmas tree casting in the O Chirstmas Tree mould using resin. Then paint it white with a touch of beigey-gray.
- Add Memorable Quotes
Next to the tree, add heartwarming quotes of your choice, like “Be a light in the darkness” and “All Christmas trees are perfect.”
- Make it Sparkle
Instead of overdoing it, thoughtfully apply German glass glitter to just the tops of the tree branches using Pentart pouring glaze. This gives the tree a glittery touch, elevated for extra depth.
- Aging the Frame
Using vintage photo ink and a blending tool, age the frame to give it a rustic look.
- Final Touches
Dry brushing with white paint brings all elements together cohesively.
A generous coat of sealer ensures the longevity of your piece.
The project involves a good amount of detailed work but, believe us, the end result is worth the effort. It’s an art piece you’ll be proud to display or even a gift to a loved one.
