- Purl & Loop Wood Display Trees
- acrylic paint
- foam brush
- soap for cleaning brush between colors
- round weavers
Step 1: Choose your paint
Since it is February, we decided to go with traditional Valentine red, pink and white. (We picked up our acrylic paint from Texas Art Supply, right here in Houston.)
Step 2: Paint the trees
We used a foam brush to apply the paint in smooth, even strokes.
Step 3: Sand the nooks and crannies
Because the paint adds some thickness to the wood, it may become a tight fit to put the trees together. To work around this, we used sandpaper to sand the openings just a bit wider so the trees would slide into place as easily as they do without any paint.
Step 4: Decorate!
We hung 1” and 2” Round Weavers from our tree, but you can experiment with different sizes, mini ornaments, or other handmade items!
