Hi everyone! Steph at The Silly Pearl here with another crafty tutorial, this time for the holidays. I thought a quick and fun craft would be fitting since it gets so crazy this time of year. Here's how I made my Rustic Christmas Tree Wall Art.
- Picture frame (mine is 10x12 inches)
- Board that came with the frame (or a board cut to fit)
- Glittery scrapbook paper
- Wood dowel
- Wood slices, cut at an angle (available at the craft store, but you can also use branches, driftwood, or flat wood pieces)
- "Peace" wood sign (or other word, or individual letters)
- Craft or chalk-based paint
- Little wood star
- Hot glue
- Glue stick
First, I placed my dowel, wood slices, and "Peace" wood sign inside my frame, to make sure everything fit. Lookin' good.
I used a glue stick to adhere some glittery scrapbook paper to the board that came with the frame, and popped it back into the frame. Then, I used hot glue to adhere my wood dowel to the center. My wood dowel was already stained but you can find these in bare wood and paint/stain it yourself.
Starting at the bottom, I adhered the wood slices at an angle along the wood dowel. I placed a dollop of hot glue just in the spots where the wood slices came in contact with the wood dowel and the scrapbook paper.
I found the "Peace" wood sign at the craft store. I painted it with gray chalk-based paint and a dry brushing of brown paint on top. Once dry, I hot glued the sign to the top. And last but not least, I hot glued a little star to the top of the tree.
All done with my rustic Christmas tree wall art. Took no time at all!
Place your new and quick to make wall art on the your mantle, on your entryway table, or even on your front door in place of a wreath!
