Step 1: Sketch It Out
First, I began with a light sketch of the tree with a white eyeliner pencil.

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.

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.

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.
