  1. To remove dirt and grease from the trees, wipe them down with rubbing alcohol.
    Step 0 Example
  2. Paint the trees with Apple Green and allow to dry thoroughly.
    Step 1 Example
  3. In four separate plastic cups, mix equal parts DecoArt Pouring Medium and paint being sure to keep one color per cup (Apple Green, Green Beret, and Woodland Green). For this project, I chose to do a "dirty pour," meaning I mixed the paint into one bowl and poured it over the trees. Rotate them carefully to ensure coverage and let dry thoroughly (at least 1-2 days). For added durability follow up with DuraClear Light Satin Varnish (optional).
    Step 2 Example
  4. Using an old brush or a popsicle stick, drop clumps of Snowtex onto the surface and shape with tools. Imagine how the snow would be settled on a tree and mimic that. Before the Snow-Tex dries, you can sprinkle Crystal Glamour Dust for added sparkle (optional).
