Wood tree shape
Mod Podge Satin
Martha Stewart Decorative Paint – Wedding Cake
Washi tape – your choice of colors
Lace ribbon in red
Sheer ribbon in blue
Embellishment for the top
Here’s the wood piece that I started with. I cut off the burlap twine and squirreled aways those glittered beads (who wouldn’t?).
Paint the tree. Super easy.
I applied the washi tape at a diagonal, starting at a random place on the tree.
I covered the entire tree with alternating patterns of the tape. Trim excess with scissors.
A coat of Satin Mod Podge went promptly over the top. I let it dry and then gave it a second coat.
Adding embellishments was a very random process. I cut a few strips of what I had and laid it out. Then I glued it down when I was satisfied.
Snip the ends of the brads and glue them down at the intersection of the ribbon. Let everything dry, then knot ribbon at the top if you chose.
I’m not quite sure what I’m doing with it yet, but I love it!
I think I’m just obsessed with the colors. What do you think? Also, have you ever tried washi tape? I think I’m hooked.
