1: Paint the large piece of plywood your desired color. I am painting mine a neutral brown (I can get you the exact color when I pick it up)
2: Once the plywood piece is dry, turn it over to attach the picture-hanging hardware.
3: Sand the pieces of PVC lightly. This will assure that the spray paint will adhere to the PVC.
4: Take your spray paint and spray both inside and outside the pipe.
5: Set aside to dry. Depending on climate, you may need to set aside for up to 24 hours to dry completely.
6: Take your pencil and tape measure on your dried plywood. Mark the top and bottom centers with your pencil.
7: Mark with a pencil where you want the top of the tree, bottom of the tree, and sides of the tree. If you would like a tree trunk, leave ample space below the tree for that. Same applies for a star at the top of the tree!
8: Follow these pencil guides with painter’s tape and tape the outline of your tree.
9: Take your PVC pieces and start arranging them within the painter’s tape outline.
10: Use hot glue on the bottom of each PVC piece and secure into place. Continue this step until all of your tree is complete.
11: Remove painter’s tape
12: Add any homemade or store-bought ornaments
13: Hang and enjoy!
