Introduction: Charlie Brown's Christmas Tree Hand Art

From itty bitty to gigantically gorgeous, this take on Charlie Brown's Christmas tree will sure to leave you glowing withe holiday spirit!

Step 1: Sketch It Out

First, I began with a light sketch of the tree with a white eyeliner pencil.

Step 2: Fill in Large Areas

Next, I used green face paint (Mehron Paradise) to fill in the triangle shaped tree. Then, I used light blue (Mehron Paradise) to fill in Linus' blanket wrapped around the tree trunk.

Step 3: Add Decorations

Then, I begin adding my "decorations" using red, yellow, pink, and whtie paint (all from Mehron Paradise).

Red- bulbs and star

Yellow- extra bulbs

Pink- paper chain

White- popcorn string

Step 4: Outline

Now, I used black paint (Mehron Paradise) to outline the entire picture.

Step 5: Add Background

For the final touches, I used dark blue paint, and a mix of mauve and white paint to create the background, complete with a dark night sky, snowy ground and twinkling stars.

Step 6: O Christmas Tree!

How faithful are your painted branches! Now, that's a tree that Charlie Brown would have approved of!
