  • White spray paint
  • Recycled denim
  • Patterned fabric
  • Scissors
  • White craft glue or Elmer's Glue All

  3. Arrange circles on the plywood, layering different sizes of contrasting colors and patterns. Use some with three layers, others with two, and some just with one.

  7. Once you have everything arranged the way that you want it, use a paintbrush to lightly apply a coat of glue to the back of the denim. Be careful not to get glue on the front as it can discolor the denim, making it darker. Gently press and smooth the pieces in place.

  1. What a fun craft idea to do with the kiddos! You could even cut out pictures of friends and family and incorporate them in the tree. Love it!

  2. This is so cute! It would look awesome with scrapbook papers as well - I'm thinking even smaller sizes on a page or a card. Thanks for sharing :)
