Supplies you’ll need for this wood Christmas tree craft:
- Small Christmas Tree w/Base
- Kudzu Dixie Belle Chalk Paint
- Garnet Gemstone Mousse by Dixie Belle Chalk Paint
- Gold Gilding Wax by Dixie Belle Chalk Paint
- Unfinished Split Wood Balls
- Acrylic Paint Brush Set
- Gorilla Super Glue
This design is fairly simple and only requires a few elements to complete. Feel free to substitute any of the colors with colors you have or with what best matches your décor style.
Begin by assembling the base by gluing it together.
Then, use the Gold Gilding Wax on the stand and the star at the top of the tree.
I just used my finger to apply the gilding wax.
Next, paint the body of the tree with the color Kudzu from Dixie Belle.
While the tree is drying, use the Garnet Gemstone Mousse to paint all of the half circles.
Once everything is dry, it’s time to glue it all together.
Place a bit of super glue on each “berry” and place them on the tree.
I tried to make a pattern that evenly distributed them across the entire body of the tree.
Once all of the berries are in place, place the tree in the stand for easy display. You can then remove the stand for storage at the end of the season.
Here’s the finished product displayed with my other holiday décor.
You can also omit the stand and use the cutout as an ornament.
As you can see below, I made an entire set of trees including one that was simply stained and another that was decoupaged.
The tree cutout also works perfectly with the “Christmas Tree Cutting Board Pattern” Transfer from Chalk Couture. You can get the transfer HERE and shop for more Chalk Couture Supplies HERE.
