O Christmas Tree Wall Hanging Materials:
O Christmas Tree Wall Hanging Instructions:
• Print out the Christmas Tree.
• Trace the tree onto your cardboard.
• Cut out the tree.
• Begin to wrap the cardboard tree in yarn, starting at the top. This will be the most challenging part as the top triangle is small and the yarn will want to keep slipping off the top. After a few wraps, secure the yarn to the backside of your cardboard with hot glue. Glue everything on this back side for a nice clean tree.
• When you are wrapping, the trick is to not use too much tension and don’t hold the yarn too tight. Glue every third wrap around the tree using a small amount of hot glue, and always on the backside of the cardboard tree.
• Continue to wrap the top triangle and move onto the middle section. When you get down to the pointed corners, use a teeny tiny bit of glue to hold the yarn in place.
• Repeat on the final bottom portion of the tree and trunk.
• To finish the tree, cut the yarn and glue on the back side with hot glue.
• Place the template in your frame. Keep the glass behind the paper template. You are using the glass from the frame as a defacto backer board. You are not using glue to hold the “how lovely are thy branches” template in place, the frame will do that for you. If you would like glass in front of your frame, you would need to purchase a shadowbox frame.
• Place the frame on a flat surface.
• Cover the back of your tree with hot glue. Glue the tree to the template.
• Note: If you have an old frame lying about the house that does not have glass in it, you would need backer board and a few dabs of hot glue to hold the “how lovely are thy branches” template in place.
• Display as desired.
• If you prefer not to hang this, get a small art stand and display on a tea cart, sideboard, fireplace mantel, or end table!
