Bead Christmas Tree 🎄

christmas Aug 03, 2022

This project is as simple as it gets! This is my last Christmas in July project for now, and it's very easy and very fun. This is a Christmas tree on an 8x10 canvas and all you need is some acrylic paint, seed beads, and resin! Make this now for the holidays or put it in your back pocket when the festive mood strikes.

First, we are going to add some navy blue to the canvas, plus some white. I've already sketched on my tree, so I'm just going to paint the navy blue all around the tree. I'm also painting the edges blue too. 

Add some dark green, medium green, and light green to your palette. I'm grabbing a fat round brush to paint the tree. I'm just going to add the color in long strokes from the edge of the tree towards the middle. 

Now, it's time to resin! I know - it seems like we're doing this backwards, but after the resin, we will sprinkles our seed beads.

We're going to elevate our canvas using blocks. Mix 1/2 ounce of resin and stir gently for three minutes. Then, drizzle over your canvas and spread it using your gloved fingers or brush.

I am going to add my Christmas star now. I cut five triangles from a mercury glass vase, but use whatever you would like! Drizzle a little bit more resin over your star.

Use a heat gun to pop your bubbles. Keep your heat moving at all times!

Next, sprinkle your seed beads! I am using five different colors - gold, crystal, white, red, and green. These are all from Hobby Lobby. Sprinkle one color at a time until you love it. 

And that's it! Think outside the box and add whatever you would like! This one is so simple and so cute!
