Word Christmas Tree

Re-create a popular idea of a Christmas tree shape with words using JOY letters. This is so much easier than painting the letters!  Use a different font for each letter, or the same font for them all.

You'll need:
Joy® Iron-on Embroidered letters for the words: Joy*, Noel, Love, Hope, Peace
Joy® Iron-on Embroidered stars - 3
12" x 16" Canvas board
DecoArt® Americana® acrylic paint - Red
Swirl stamp
Foam brush
*The center monogram letter was used for the word JOY

1. Paint the board.  While the paint is wet, stamp the surface with the dry swirl stamp.  Let dry.

2. Center the stars at the top and bottom of the board.  Starting with the middle letter of the word, arrange the letters to create each word, one at a time. Iron the letters in place following directions on the packaging.

3. Make the sign unique by using different fonts, coloring the letters with paint or dye, or adding sparkle and bling with glitter or jewels.

You can find JOY® Iron-on letters in your local craft and hobby stores.
