Pinterest.  I love it. 
I have found so many inspirations but I don't have enough time in the day! 
Like this.  And this.  And let's not forget this
Of course, you have to get busy making and not pinning all day!  So I did.

Found this on Pinterest and knew I had to make it. 
You will need a canvas (mine was 14 x 11), paints, and I used my Silhouette for the tree stencil, but you could just as easily free hand.
First, I cut out my tree in white vinyl with my Silhouette.
Using the negative image I attached to my canvas and 
sponge painted the words and tree unto my canvas. 
Then when I removed the vinyl I had this fabulous tree ready for leaves.
My two boys, my husband and I each picked our color and starting adding leaves
 to the tree with our thumbs and fingers. 
Love the way it turned out!!  And a super easy project!!
Pin It!
