After a friend’s birthday party my Minou brought home a little tiny wooden bird house. It was so cute. As soon as I saw it I felt it needed a little tree to hang on.
I poured over many images of trees and wall stickers and then set about designing my own.
To join in you’ll need:
– Paint for the tree trunk
– Pencil for drafting your design
– Thin paintbrush
– Coloured card stock (I used scrapbooking ‘paper’)
– Blutack (I did buy border paste but in the end decided that: 1- the blutack causes the leaves to lift slightly off the wall giving it a ‘blowing in the breeze look’ and 2, it meant I wouldn’t have to scrap off the numerous leaves when her room gets a re-design or change around later).
– A quiet house. You don’t want little fingers smudging your handiwork before its dry!
Draw your tree design onto the wall in pencil. When you are happy with it paint over with a fine paintbrush. Whilst it dries cut out your leaves. Place your leaves sporadically around the branches. Stand back and admire.
