Painted Trees for Bedroom or Living Room Walls

First, sketch out your tree on your wall with pencil. Next, use $2.00 craft paint from Jo Ann Fabrics, I chose a dark brown but the tree can be any color. Begin filling in the tree with a small paint brush! If you look closely, each leaf has a "vain" left unpainted for added detail. this is optional. 

After the tree was painted, I sketched some birds and painted those as well. 

This tree was done the same way. First, use a pencil to sketch out the tree design you would like and then just simply paint over it! I did my tree in black. As you can see, my tree is a different type than Devon's is. You can find pictures of different tree silhouettes online and get creative!

(If you can't tell by now, the theme to my room is "A Garden")  ;)

I really love how half of my tree peaks out from around the corner of the wall. It adds a creative flair to it. So, if you have a corner or curve in a wall somewhere in your house, don't be afraid to try something like this there!

Painting your own tree is a great alternative to those pricey wall decals! These trees were so much fun to make and cost a total of about $4.00 for paint and brushes!
