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

Add Mod Podge in the shape of a tree.

Place out a strand of battery operated lights. Mine came from Dollar Tree.

Use an ice pick to make holes where you want the lights to go.

Push the lights in through the back.

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 added jewel snowflake stickers - these came from Dollar Tree.

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.

    Just curious why it seems that there are more holes poked in the canvas or is it some other type of tiny decoration?? If I'm seeing things feel free to tell me to hush lol. Thanks for sharing your gift with all of us.

      Thanks for clarifying that. I would have messed up really bad if you hadn't. You saved my first really awful mistake from happening Chas. Thank you very much.
