Upcycle Plain LED Tree to Birch/Aspen Tree
I have had this plain LED tree for a while. I almost got rid of it last summer at our garage sale. I just felt it was missing something. When I was walking through Target this holiday season I saw they were selling trees like this one and they looked like aspen or birch trees. They were super expensive and the light bulb went on! I can do this with my tree with just a little Dixie Belle Paint!
- An LED Tree - find one on clearance this time of year or see link below
- Dixie Belle Midnight Sky
- Dixie Belle Fluff
*A little goes a long way with this paint, and one coat is usually enough. It's about $10 per jar, but that is only about $1 per ounce for amazing paint!
I used painters tape to cover all the LED lights.
I painted the entire tree with the Dixie Belle Fluff
When that had dried I accented the tree with Dixie Belle Midnight Sky to give it the Aspen/Birch look.
How many of you look at those trees and see the eyes looking at you???
Here is the finished tree, and I love it so much more now!
I'm excited to put it back up again after the fresh new update and I have a feeling it'll be up longer than just the holiday season.
