Create this fabulous tabletop tree to brighten up your holiday décor.
Designed by Cathie Filian, Steve Piacenza, Plaid Creative Team.
- FolkArt® Acrylic Paint: Warm White, Seamist
- FolkArt® Crackle Medium
- Paper mache cone tree
- Foam brush
- Twig and leaf floral picks
- Assorted floral embellishments (green, brown, pink and red)
- Low Heat Glue Gun and Glue Sticks
Paint the cone with Warm White. Let dry 1 hour. Apply a coat of Crackle Medium. Let dry at least 4 hours.
Working quickly and with one coat only, topcoat the cone with Seamist. Crackling will begin almost immediately. Let dry for 1 hour.
Break apart the twig pick and hot glue it to the base of the tree.
Working with the largest flowers first, hot glue them over the twig pick. Continue adding flowers until the design is filled in.
To finish, hot glue the leaves from the leaf pick to the flowers. Randomly glue pearls and rhinestones.
