First paint your canvas - I used black acrylic paint which came from Walmart. Let it dry completely.

Here is where I had to stop for the Hometalk Live but I wasn't quite finished... so I continued later.

I added more Mod Podge and glitter to the tree to get the look I wanted. I added white acrylic paint snow dots, and I sprayed it with Glitter Blast spray paint. To hold all the glitter in place, I decided to spray the whole thing once it was dry with acrylic sealer spray.

I bought a second strand of battery operated lights. These came from Walmart. I put the battery box on the back, poked a hole in the corner of the tree and pulled the lights through.

I used a hot glue gun to help place the light strand onto the tree.
