Christmas Wooden Tree Frame Tutorial:
Step 1: Remove the frame insert and paint it a bright white (or leave it the warm white it comes with).
Step 2: Paint three different sizes of wooden beads green.
Step 3: Create a triangle template from printer paper and tape to the now dry frame insert.
Step 4: Begin hot gluing the painted beads to the inside of the frame. Pre-plan your design to ensure you fill the entire design with the small, medium, and large painted beads.
Step 5: When beads are glued in place, place the insert back inside the frame.
Step 6: Cut a banner from black cardstock and fold to create a three-dimensional banner.
Step 7: Mount the banner across the bottom part of the frame with pop dots. Add a gold "Christmas" die cut phrase to the banner and a black striped ribbon to the top of the tree.
