birch wood diy

March 24, 2011

Hello everyone. I’m so glad being here on GHTR today to show you one of my easy project tutorials I’ve made recently.My name is Lou and I live in Frankfurt, Germany. I have a blog named Happy Serendipity which is all about crafty inspiration, handmade markets, I have a DIY tutorial each week and a free digital download as well. Being a sewing addict I have an Etsy shop – named HappySerendipity as well. Please stop by and have a look. I will donate 50% of all purchases to the German Red Cross these days to support the victims of Japan. Thank you.

 
Materials needed:

– Slices of birch tree (available in craft stores or flower shops, I found these at Dawanda)
– Acrylic paint or crayons or sharpies
– Printout of artwork
– Tracing paper

Trace the artwork on the wood by laying the tracing paper between the draft and the wood.
Use a pencil to draw the lines.

After tracing everything it should look like this.

Now you can start to paint. For some I drew a black outline with a black sharpie before painting but that’s
totally up to you.

I used either acrylic paint and crayons.
