INSTRUCTIONS:

  1.  Draw a straight line from opposite corners across the length of the sheet. Cut the sheet in half. Lay the two halves together along the factory edges to create the tree shape. Glue the pieces together. Insert toothpicks in between for a stronger hold.
  2. Use the pallet knife to apply an even coat of Smooth Finish® to the front and sides of the tree. Let dry and sand lightly to smooth as needed. Apply a second coat. Let dry and sand smooth.
  3. Brush on a coat of cream paint and let dry. Spray Tint It™ Sepia around the outside edges of the tree. Apply heavier coverage towards the outside edge to create an aged look. Let dry.
  4. Draw your desired design in pencil on the tree. Draw very lightly so you do not indent lines into the tree.
  5. Lay the end of the yarn at the beginning of the design. Use the tuck tool to tuck the end of the yarn into the foam. Do not push the tuck tool in very far or you will create too big of a hole. If the yarn doesn’t stay when you remove the tool, tuck in a little more until it stays. Follow the stitching along the design tucking the yarn for each stitch. Zigzag stitch the yarn back and forth within a shape to fill in solid with yarn.
  6. Make a large pompom from all the yarn colors and glue to the top of the tree.
  7. Make several small tassels from the yarn and glue them hanging from the bottom of the tree. Embellish the tree with buttons.
