Blue Beads for Christmas Tree

{seasonal style} Painted Christmas Trees

White Metallic Christmas Tree with Ornaments. Next up, I worked on the Christmas tree with the circle cutouts. After painting the tree with a base coat of white acrylic, I then applied two coats of Modern Masters brand of shimmer metallic paint in Snowflake White using the leftovers of the sample-sized bottle I had purchased for another project.

I wanted to create the appearance of an ornament hanging within each of the open circles of this tree, so I picked up a bag of small glitter-covered styrofoam spheres for about a dollar at a local craft store. A very fine needle and thin, clear thread completed my supply list.

I threaded the needle and left and equal length of thread on each side of the needle's eye. I originally tried to knot the thread before pulling it through the sphere, such that the knot would prevent the thread from pulling all the way out, but the thread was too thin and even with two or three knots it still just pulled right through the styrofoam. Instead, I pushed the needle through the center, then wrapped the thread around the sphere and placed the needle back through the same spot again to make it more secure. I left about a two inch length of string on one side, and trimmed off the excess thread on the other side. I placed a dab of hot glue over the trimmed off threads on what would be the bottom of the ornaments to ensure that the thread would stay securely in place.

I used the thread on the top of the spheres to suspend the ornaments within each of the full circles on the Christmas tree. Large gobs of hot glue on back side of the tree holds the threads in place. {And, yes, "dab" and "glob" are very technical hot glue terms!} From the front side of the tree, ornaments appear to be floating in the center of each circular cutout.Ombre Christmas Tree. Finally, the Christmas tree I was most excited about, but also the most nervous about - my Ombre tree. I've painted ombre stripes before {on a large scale - all the walls of the nursery}, but for this tree I wanted the color to fade from dark to light rather than having stark stripes.

I had already learned that the chipboard absorbed quite a bit of paint and required several coats to cover, so I started by giving the entire tree a two coats of solid white acrylic. Then I selected a charcoal acrylic paint for the darkest grey at the bottom of the tree.
