Project Instructions

Refer to photo, then paint the wood pieces in paint colors shown. Re-paint the triangles with the complementary color of Craft Twinkles®. Paint the stars with Splendid Gold Dazzling Metallic®.

Note: Both the large and small trees are assembled in the same manner. Referring to photograph, glue the wood pieces together.

Glue a star to the top of one of the sticks, then starting with the smallest triangle, glue a small, medium and large rectangle onto the front of the stick as shown in the photo.

Glue the same size of triangle to the back of the stick, directly behind the triangle glued to the front. Offset the triangles as shown in the photo.

Glue a square at the base of the stick.

Turn the stick over, then glue a star and a square behind the same shape on the front of the stick.

Tips

Use the emery board to sand the wood pieces. Paint the edges of the wood pieces first then place on wax paper. Paint both sides of each piece before assembling.
