Instructions for the DIY Glitter Ombre Christmas Tree Canvas
Begin by tracing the Christmas tree form onto the front of the canvas in the center.
Using a thin tipped paint brush, brush on some white school glue to cover the entire bottom third of the Christmas tree on the front of your canvas. You can view the photo for an idea of how to do this.
Sprinkle one color of glitter onto the section of the Christmas tree that you applied glue to, and gently tap off the excess onto a paper plate or into the trash can.
Let the glue dry completely.
Apply glue to the second third of the Christmas tree shape on the front of your canvas using a paint brush.
Sprinkle your second color of glitter onto the section with the glue and tap off the excess.
Let the glue dry completely once again.
Use a paint brush to paint white school glue onto the top third of your Christmas tree.
Sprinkle your last color of glitter onto the section with the glue and tap off the excess.
Let the canvas dry one last time.
Once dry, use hot glue to attach a line of ribbon, twine or sisal rope around the outside edge of the entire canvas.
Use hot glue to attach a small silver jingle bell to the top of your glitter tree.
