We propose to make just such a Christmas tree. If you choose a carved stencil, then it will become elegant as a lace. Before we make a Christmas tree out of paper, we will collect everythingnecessary materials and tools. From materials we will need: stencil pattern, watercolor paper and gouache. The thicker the paper, the better the tree will keep the shape after painting. Watercolor paper is designed for strong wetting, from water contained in the ink, it does not become dull, but printer paper and drawing paper do not fit. You will need tools: a sharp paper knife, paper clips, 2 brushes, a sponge for utensils, a needle and a thread . Knife choose a stationery with breakable blades or a small building. With a large brush or sponge we will paint the Christmas tree, and with a small brush draw the stars and the crown. First, print out the stencil. Take 2 sheets of watercolor paper and apply a stencil on them, fix the edges on the edges. It is important that when cutting, the sheets do not move. Under the bottom, lay many layers of newspapers on a soft surface easier to cut and you will not spoil the table. Cutting openwork is the longest and most difficult stage. When it is finished, the most pleasant creative component comes. Now the details have to be sewn. First, you can take a needle thicker, and how to make a puncture through the sewing line at a distance of 0.5 cm from each other. Then, through these punctures, stitch and hide the thread. It's time to start painting the Christmas tree with green gouache. Gouache is good in that, like all water-soluble paints, it dries quickly, lays with a dense opaque layer, covering all the previous layers, with it a bright matte surface. After the green paint dries, and thiswill occur in an hour, you can begin to paint the details of the Christmas tree. Our stencil is very convenient in this respect. The asterisks are well cut out, and it will not be difficult to paint them. I had silver, yellow and red colors. Instead of silver, a white gouache with a drop of blue or red will work well. Bright white will be snow, so it's best not to use it so that the details do not merge. It's time to revive the Christmas tree with snow - drops of white gouache. Spray them with a large hard brush or brush evenly, preferably in the center. Do not try too hard to do it neatly, snow sweeps as he pleases. So we learned how to make a Christmas tree out of paper.
