O Christmas Tree

Here is an easy Christmas project to help kick-off the holiday season.

 Here is what you need:
- Board
- Vinyl
- Paint
-Scrapbook Paper
-Glue or Mod Podge
- Spray Finish

Here is what you do:
1. Cut your board to the size you want (mine is 11" x 5.5").
2. Paint your board white (or any color that coordinates with your scrapbook paper) and let dry.
3. Cut your scrapbook paper to the size of the board, glue on and let dry
4. Use sandpaper and lightly sand the edges of the of the paper and board.
5. Apply the vinyl tree, starting with the light green, then brown and dark green last.
6. To create the shadow look on the words (see image below), cut them out in two colors and the same size. Apply the dark green first. Then, when applying the light green, position it just a little off from the dark green.
7. Add a few coats of spray finish.

Come back later to get the free digital file to make your own.

You are doing just a great job designing all these really fun vinyl projects! I've been really impressed with what you've been coming up with. Love the two tone colors of this one!

You could turn this into an advent calendar by putting a colored dot (for ornaments) onto the tree each day. Fun craft!
