How to Make

1. Begin by painting your shelf tree all over with the white chalking paint, not forgetting the insides or undersides. 2. Paint another layer of chalky paint to ensure even coverage, if necessary. 3. Measure the width and length of each shelf, then draw out onto the back of a sheet of the decoupage paper in pencil. Cut out with scissors. 4. Carefully apply a layer of decoupage glue to the bottom of the inside of the shelf, then place your measured strip of paper on top. Use a paintbrush to add more glue on top, pushing out any air bubbles from the centre outwards, as you go.

5. Continue step 3 and 4 for the rest of the shelves. How to Decorate a Wooden Shelf Tree #christmas #tree #shelf #wood #decoration #diy #home
