How to make a Kitchen Christmas Tree

PAINT THE BUCKET

Step 1.

Tape off the bottom part of the twine so you don’t get any paint on it. Use your chip brush to paint the bucket with white chalk paint. Let dry.

STEP 2.

Start by cutting the holiday napkin in half, then in half again. If the napkin is 2-ply, remove the top layer. You only want to use the printed napkin. 

Quick tip: to make it easier to separate the napkin, place a piece of scotch tape in one corner. When you pull it away the tape will help separate it.

MOD PODGE THE NAPKIN 

STEP 3.
Place mod podge on the bucket and lightly add the napkin where you want it to go. I placed it in the front center. Add a light coat of mod podge on the top of the napkin using your chip brush.

Quick Tip: Use a piece of plastic wrap to remove any wrinkles. Just slowly press down on the napkin and rub the wrinkles out. Work lightly so you don’t tear the napkin.

STEP 4.

Lightly paint over the twine with your chip brush and chalk paint. You don’t want to cover it completely with paint. Just give it a touch of white so it blends better with the painted bucket.

STEP 5.

Place floral foam into the bucket. Remove the bottom of the tree stand. Secure the tree into the floral foam. Just push the bottom of the stand into the foam until it is steady. You can use a little hot glue if needed.
