Denim Circle Tree

By:

6 Comments

Decorate your wall with this fun and thrifty Denim Circle Tree from Amanda Formaro.  Made with denim and fabric scraps, recycled denim jeans projects like this are great for using up random odds and ends.

Denim Circle Tree

Materials:

  • Plywood rectangle
  • Sand paper
  • White spray paint
  • Recycled denim
  • Patterned fabric
  • Scissors
  • White craft glue or Elmer's Glue All
  • Paintbrush


Instructions:

  1. Lightly sand the plywood, removing any rough edges. Spray the plywood with white spray paint and allow to dry. Add a second coat and let dry. Light sand if it feel rough to the touch.

  2. Cut denim and fabrics into different sized circles.

  3. Arrange circles on the plywood, layering different sizes of contrasting colors and patterns. Use some with three layers, others with two, and some just with one.

  7. Once you have everything arranged the way that you want it, use a paintbrush to lightly apply a coat of glue to the back of the denim. Be careful not to get glue on the front as it can discolor the denim, making it darker. Gently press and smooth the pieces in place.

  8. You can use wall putty to hang the wall art, or attach a picture hanger to the back.

This could also be done on foam core board which is already white

Thanks for the great idea! Instead of using material for the circles, I'm going to use some buttons from my collection. I have a beautiful collection and love finding ways to display them!

It is very nice. It seems easy to make.Thanks for idea.<3

I think I will try it and maybe even paint on the tree trunk.

I LIKE THE CLEAN FRESH LOOK

Instead of plywood, why not use fabric (maybe burlap?) and sew on the tree pieces? Thanks for the idea - I may run with it!
