When we were looking around at homes Bethany told everyone that she was going to be getting a new PINK room. So, that left us with not many options, a PINK room it is.
One pink wall was plenty and I wanted to do something on another wall that pulled all the colors in. I found the perfect fabric for Bethany's bedspread and blind coverings that had polka-dots. I am in love with the hip vinyl trees you see everywhere but I couldn't find just the right thing I wanted so I decided I would make my own.
I got all my pots and pans lids, my biggest bowl and a tupperware lid and traced a bunch of circles onto butcher paper and then cut them out. I then taped all the circles to the wall and played with there location and how many I wanted. When I found just the right look I traced the circles onto the wall. I then sketched a trunk out of butcher paper and taped it onto the wall and made it just right and then traced it as well. I used my pink from the one wall in her room and the other paints where just a water based acrylic paint from Michaels. I used a few different sized paint brushes. The acrylic paint took 3-4 coats and the wall paint just took two. After it dried for a couple days I took a paint pen from Michaels as well and drew on some stitches around each circle. The stitches really finished it nicely!! I used a brown stitch in the circles and a white stitch in the trunk.
And voila, a tree that cost less than $10, and it fits perfectly in the room.
