Project Instructions

Step 1 Trace the two different heart sizes onto cardstock. Using scissors, cut out the small and large hearts.

Step 2 Just beneath the collar in the center of the shirt, trace the smaller heart with pencil. Referring to photo, trace three more hearts, turning each one 90° as you go, creating a heart “star” for the tree.

Step 3 Centered directly beneath the heart star, trace the larger heart with pencil. Directly beneath that heart, add two hearts, side by side. Continue adding stacked hearts, adding one heart to each row until tree is the size desired.

Step 4 Use True Red dimensional paint and outline four hearts at top of tree. Let dry.

Step 5 Outline tree hearts randomly with 'Lectric Lime, Pistachio Green and Leaf Green.

Step 6 Squeeze out some True Red onto palette. Use paintbrush to paint in red hearts. Let dry.

Step 7 Squeeze out 'Lectric Lime, Pistachio Green and Leaf Green onto palette. Use paintbrush to paint coordinating colors into same color dimensional hearts. Use image as a guide. Let dry.


It helps to outline a heart in paint first, and then use a paintbrush to fill in the rest of the heart. Show your love for Christmas with a tree full of hearts made with Tulip® dimensional paints. It makes a great gift for a friend or yourself!
