Our Art Project: An Entryway Wall Tree

Inspired by this cool tree wall sticker we found at 2modern.com, my husband and I decided to try a frugal version. Rather than fork over $127.75 we used some tape, leftover paint and a little creativity to make our own wall tree for about $5.

First we made a stencil using painters’ tape. It took a little work to make the rounded branches.

Then we used a clear glaze to paint over the entire tree. This made the edges really crisp.

We followed up with the leftover dark gray paint we had from painting our gym and living room ceilings. Once we took off the tape that created the branches and trunk we used homemade stencils to make leaves. We painted the leaves in the same way as the rest of the tree.

We finished up by adding some $.50 hooks we picked up at Lowe’s and our tree is complete! Let us know what you think!
