We had a Rockin’ Christmas party and as part of the décor I decided to make a fun DIY to go with the theme.
Naturally, I gravitated towards The Dollar Tree to purchase everything I would need:
White poster board
Glitter Glue in assorted colors (I used green, silver, and red)
A star to top the tree
The extra things I used that I had at home were:
Sharpies (I used silver, black, red, and green)
Pencil with eraser
First, I cut the white poster board with the box cutter in four rectangular pieces descending in size.
Then, I used the pencil to draw five evenly spaced lines across the rectangular pieces of poster board leaving some additional space on the top and bottom.
Next, I drew a treble clef on the left of each piece and randomly drew music notes across.
Once the drawing was finished I traced the treble clef with a green sharpie, alternated the music notes in red and black, and then traced the lines with a silver sharpie.
I then used the glitter glue to trace over everything in its respective colors; green glue over green sharpie, red over red, etc.
On an empty wall, I placed the star with a thumbtack and then mounted each of the poster board pieces in a triangular shape (resembling a Christmas tree) with the mounting putty.
For the finishing touch I placed the snowflakes randomly on each of the poster board pieces with double-sided tape.
Seeing the music tree on the wall every day brought a fun feel to the house and made us even more excited to rock it out!
Many of you have way better artistic abilities and I would love to see what you create for Christmas this year if this little DIY inspired you 😉
