Things to Alter Shabby Chic Christmas Tree and Tutorial

Hi all

Today i am going to show you how to create this shabby chic Christmas tree.

Coat the mdf with white gesso or cheap white acrylic paint.

Using a stencil apply the pattern onto the base once the gesso has dried. Scrap off any of any excess medium.

Apply a couple of coats of pink acrylic paint. I mixed DecoArt Oatmeal and candy pink to get this colour

Make sure that the holes are free from paint 

Add 8 mm pearls by threading hoop pins through them and hooking the wire through the hole.

Put a blob of glue near the top of the tree and wrap beaded wire around the tree

Finish the top of the tree by adding a lace bow and embelishment
