painted tree wood slice ornament

Nothing says Christmas like a hand-painted Christmas ornament. This snow-covered tree is painted on a natural wood slice ornament and brings the outdoors in and on your tree.
Step 1

Lightly draw the trunk of the tree down the middle of the wood slice ornament. Then, lightly draw branches coming down the tree and wisping out from the trunk.

Step 2

Paint the trunk line using Cocoa Bean. Vary the line slightly as you paint to give it thick and thin areas. Let dry.

Step 3

Use one of the green paints and paint your wispy tree branches. Let dry.

Step 4

Use the other green paint and paint over the branches allowing some of the green from under to show through; then let dry.

Step 5

Dab some white paint onto the branches, add white dots in the background and white paint bottom of the tree to resemble snow. Let dry.

Step 6

Remove the jute hanger from the ornament and thread through some of the black and white twine to make a hanger.
