Christmas Trees by Clear Scraps~

Hi, Connie here with the 3D Chipboard Christmas Tree set by Clear Scraps.  They are decorated with snowflakes and buttons!!! So festive and fun.

I love that they come is a set of three, making for a beautiful cluster of trees.  Great for a table centerpiece and other winter decor.  Creating them is pretty fun too!!  Let me show you~

1.  Using Forrest Green spray paint, paint the trees~ one side and then the other side, six pieces in all.
2.  Stencil small snowflakes, on both sides of the trees, using beige or white acrylic paint. I applied the paint with a cosmetic sponge. Works great!
3. Paint the star with gold paint or emboss the star.  Add snow (Rock Candy stickles) to the top of the star. 
4.  Let dry.
5.  Create a tag for the large tree using the Fruit of the Spirit stencil by Clear Scraps.

6.  Spray trees with acrylic clear spray.

The trees slip together, making it easy to assemble and easy to store away for the next year.

The tag is created by stenciling, on a white tag, with several different Christmas stencils by Clear Scraps.   Also a great way to make gift tags for gifts. Easy and cute!!
