  • Dollar Tree 8 x 10 Canvas
  • Waverly Ink Chalk Paint (or whatever black paint you have on hand)
  • Scissors
  • Paintbrush
  • Green and White Cotton string from Dollar Tree
  • Hot Glue Gun


  • Start by removing the canvas from the wooden frame. I used the scissors to raise one of the staples out and then just started tugging at the canvas and it come off easily.
  • Trim the excess off of the canvas so that it will not show on the sides once glued on.
  • Using the Waverly ink chalk paint, paint the wooden frame. I only needed one coat.
  • Next to start making your tassels, Wrap the green and white string around your fingers about 15 times, (more if you want it to be fluffier). Cut at the end.
  • Then cut a piece about 4 inches long and tie this around the tassel a little bit from the top.
  • Next cut the bottom of the tassel so the pieces are not attached and are flowing. Repeat this process to make 13 tassels
  • Next hot glue the canvas (the tan side) facing the inside of the wooden frame, to the frame.
  • Next using the hot glue gun, glue 6 tassels to the bottom section, 4 on top of that, then 2, and then the top tassel to form a tree. ( I laid them out before I glue them to trim some of them, to give it a cleaner look).
