It's amazing how much a dallop of sparkle can really brighten up a room! Paint your wooden shadowbox tree, add some glitter and you have yourself a festive winter decoration! Follow these easy steps and make your own Glittered Dipped Tree!
Draw line on tree
Lay the tree down onto your work surface. Place a straight edge diagonally across the bottom third of the tree. Lightly draw a line along the straight edge.
Draw lines inside the shelves
Lightly draw lines across the inside shelves. Use the painter's tape to mask off along the lines. An X-Acto® knife helps accurately cut off any excess tape.
Paint bottom gold
Paint the bottom masked area gold and let dry.
Brush Mod Podge® & add glitter
Brush Mod Podge® onto the gold areas and add gold glitter. Tap off excess glitter and let dry.
Carefully remove painter's tape.
Trace tree on blue cardstock
Lay the tree onto light blue cardstock and trace it with a pencil. Remove the tree and cut out the shape. Attach the cutout to the back of the tree with glue or a tape runner.
Ink, Mod Podge® & glitter cutouts
Choose 6 to 8 pairs of mini cutouts. Lightly ink the shapes, Mod Podge® and add snowfall glitter. Let dry.
Place foam adhesive dots on cutouts
Place 1 to 2 foam adhesive dots on the back of one of the cutouts and sandwich each pair together. Place onto the shelves as desired.
