1.Take a MDF tree. Paint the base in alternate colours with Little Birdie chalk paints Snow, Rainy Day and Archival Multisurface paint Tangy Tomato. Paint the trunk of tree and the base in chalk paint Drift Wood.
2.Once dry, use Little Birdie stencils – Christmas Icons, Dream Achieve and clear stamps – Joy of Christmas and Alphabet Jumble to stamp on each tree section.
