From average home owners to top pros such as Artworks of Spokane have graced walls with this easy to use stencil set.
This pine tree stencil set includes the base trunk, repeatable trunk, side branch, little occasional branch and the pine cone mold to create as many pine cones as you want.
Plaster the base on the lower portion of the wall, plaster the repeatable trunk up to within about 2 feet of where you wish the top of your tree to end. (You can make it as tall as you wish!)
Now, plaster side branches and small branches as you see fit.
Add the pine needle sprigs here and there on branches as you see in the photo.
Using the plaster pine cone mold, cast any number of pine cones using plaster of paris.
Once they are dry, prime or paint them with 1/2 white glue and 1/2 water to seal the porous plaster then paint with craft paints. I used dark brown, brushed a lighter brown over the top then added hints of gold metallic paint for some glam!
Tint joint compound the same color as your pine cone then spread it on the back of each pine cone (about 1/8th” thick) as your adhesive then hold to the wall for 30 seconds. Wha La! It’s there for good!
Do you want just lovely pine branches over doorways or windows? Easy! Just do the same steps with just the side branches and pine mold.
