Branch Out!

Branch Out!

Spring has sprung! (Or it will soon, depending on where you live.) Even if green grass and blooming flowers have yet to pop up in your neck of the woods, you can at least say goodbye to dreary winter days inside your home. With this three-dimensional tree wall décor project, you can kick off spring right now by following the easy instructions to grow something crafty right on your walls!
 
All you need for this simple wall art project is cut decorative papers and two kinds of tape. By layering foam tape, you can give the tree a unique dimensional quality. Our DIY instruction page suggests a springy mix of blue and green papers to get you started, but you can customize the color palette to fit your room or nursery's decor. The fun of this design is mixing and matching paper patterns. To keep a uniform look in your tree wall decoration, try limiting the paper colors and just play with pattern.
 
This craft is perfect for little helpers eager to get into the action. Older kids can help punch circles, while little ones can arrange and stick the tree pieces on the wall. Whether you make one tree or an entire forest, this wall art project will bring the color of spring to your space.
