Pine Forest Winter Decor
I had so much fun making this Pine Forest Winter Decor, and I can’t wait to show you the details of how I turned some basic supplies into adorable home decor!
I love reverse canvas projects, and that’s exactly what this project is. That just means that I took the canvas off the front of the frame, decorated it, and reattached it to the back of the frame!
I also love the use of the fake snow on this project to create a snowy pine forest scene!
How to Make a Pine Forest Winter Decor
Start this super adorable winter project by cutting the canvas off of its frame. I would recommend using a razor blade or Exacto knife to neatly cut the canvas off.
Remove any excess canvas from the frame and either hammer the staples back into the frame or pull them out carefully.
Next, I stained the canvas’s frame with brown paint. Pour the paint onto the frame and spread it with a wet wipe to stain the wood.
Decoupage a napkin
Apply a coat of Mod Podge onto the canvas that you removed from the frame. Separate the plies of the napkin you want to decoupage.
Place the top ply (the one with the design) onto the Mod Podged canvas. Cover with a piece of plastic saran wrap and roll over it with a rolling pin to remove any bubbles or wrinkles.
I used my heat gun to quickly dry the Mod Podge, then removed the excess napkin from the canvas with scissors.
Pick your paint colors
I wasn’t sure which shades of green I was going to use for my trees, so I poured a few out to test the shades and picked which ones I wanted. You can see in the tutorial video at 47:11.
Once you pick your shades of green, paint the trees from the Dollar Tree packs. Paint the “ground” pieces with white paint so it looks like snow.
This next part isn’t super fun, but it looks great when its done! Thread your wood beads onto the jute twine. (You could also use Dollar Tree’s wood bead garland)
Bring it all together
I stapled the decoupaged canvas onto the frame and glued the painted trees onto the front of the canvas. Then, I glued the bead garland across the top of the frame.
Next, I trimmed some wide red buffalo check ribbon so that it was thin enough to fit onto the frame and glued it across the top and bottom of the canvas frame.
I tied a little bow out of the red buffalo check ribbon, secured it with jute twine, and glued it at the top of the canvas frame!
Let it snow
Apply Mod Podge where you want the fake snow to adhere to the trees and ground, then press the fake snow onto the Mod Podge.
Brush white paint overtop the snow and pour more snow onto your project. Dump the excess off the project, and you’re ready to decorate!
I hope you enjoyed this Pine Forest Winter Decor as much as I did and decide to make one for yourself! If you do, I would love to see how yours turns out!
