Primary Technique: Green Crafting

Occasion/Theme: Winter

Beginner

Materials:

  • Wood plaque
  • Toilet paper rolls
  • Apple Barrel paint – Bright Magenta, Cloudless, Light Pink, Pool Blue, Regency Blue, White
  • Mod Podge Sparkle
  • Painter’s tape
  • Paintbrush(es)
  • Craft glue
  • Scissors

Instructions:

  1. Begin by basecoating the plaque with Cloudless. Let that dry until it’s really dry.
     
  2. While the plaque is drying, cut your tp rolls into various lengths. You want three for the tree top and then one for the tree base. Paint the three larger rolls with White and the tree base with Bright Magenta.


     
  3. This is the part that older kids can handle, but you might have to help the young ones. Make stripes on the back of your plaque with painter’s tape and then paint over the top with Pool Blue. Remove the painter’s tape immediately after painting.
     
  4. Let dry . . . and then paint Light Pink around the edge. Let that dry.


     
  5. Glue your tp rolls down to make a tree using the craft glue.
     
  6. Then use your paint colors (including the ones you haven’t used yet) to add dots to the “tree.” Just use the end of the paintbrush to make them. They don’t have to be even.


     
  7. Paint the plaque with Sparkle Mod Podge. You can paint the tree too – it’s up to you!
