Handmade Gift: DIY Modern Tree Art

I am continuing with another handmade gift today and my DIY modern tree art.  The perfect gift for teens and adults this modern tree art is super easy to make.  This tutorial was actually published over at Crafts Unleashed first but I thought I would share it here in case y’all missed it.  My daughter actually found this modern circle tree from Crafts by Amanda on Pinterest.  I recreated Amanda’s idea but used Duck Tape instead.

Instructions for DIY Modern Tree Art Handmade Gift:

Use the circle dies and die cutting machine to cut various size circles from the Duck tape sheets.  You could also use a pair of scissors and some circle templates or some circle punches for this task.  The Duck Tape sheets are a must though, as those make the tape easy to cut.

I used my inspiration image to sketch a tree shape by hand onto the canvas with a pencil.  I then used the burnt umber paint to paint the tree.  After your paint dries, begin to position your circles.  Don’t adhere them to the canvas until you play around with the placement.

Please note that I roughly painted the tree leaving brush strokes to sort of resemble bark.

Then, just peel away the backing on each circle and stick it to the canvas.  I wrapped the rough edge of the canvas in red ribbon as this is the accent color in my daughter’s room.  I just used hot glue to secure the ribbon.

    You make it look so easy and so great. I think I’d be laughing if I tried to paint a tree, yeah sure. Love how your tree looks tho, the colors of the circles. Neat idea, glad you shared. Happy week

    This is such a creative piece! The painted tree looks just fab. I love how smartly you placed and painted the circles on the tree painting. It has added more depth & texture to it.
