Let's Do This!
Mix together green, blue, and white paint to achieve a light aqua color. Paint entire canvas, including the edges. Let dry.
Download and print the tree template. Flip the paper over and with a heavy hand rub a pencil over the back of the tree. Flip paper back to the proper side and position on the canvas. Making a few passes, trace the outline of the tree with a pencil. When you remove the paper, a copy will be transferred to your canvas!
Mix together red, yellow, and black paint to get a brown. Paint the tree brown, adding additional swirls if desired. Be sure to switch to the smaller brush to get crisp swirls.
Using red, yellow, and white buttons; scatter them on top of the swirls and glue in place. Decorate with gems.
Take the white puffy paint and add some leaf shapes and dots along some of the buttons and branches.
