Christmas Tree Garland

Good morning ~

Today is my second craft ~

Garland for the Christmas tree.  I saw this on Pinterest, and thought this would look so nice on our tree.

I have been wanting to put garland on our tree, but it had to be different.

So here it is ~

The products you will need are:

Red craft paint ~ I used Martha Stewart

Painters Tape

Ribbon ~ I used cream burlap

Stencil ~ I used Merry Christmas here is the website

Stencil brush also Martha Stewart

Piece of cardboard or thick paper for under the ribbon ~ this is so you do not get the paint on your surface.    The paint will bleed through the burlap.

How I made the garland.

Found the ribbon which is very fine burlap at Michael’s ~  It had the edges frayed already. This will saved a bit of time.

Placed the stencil in the center of the ribbon and taped both ends to the burlap ~this way the stencil does not move.

I started at the end of the ribbon placed the stencil down and painted ~  I then spaced 4″ between each “Merry Christmas”

Let it dry and rolled it back onto the spool it came on.

This entire process took about 45 minutes.

I am so happy with the way this turned out.

Enjoy your day today.
