Step by Step Instructions

  • Step 1

    Create four 24″ x 60″ frames by connecting each corner with two 1 1/4″ long wood screws
    Connect the frames together using the 2″ long hinges
    *make sure that the frames are in a zigzag pattern
    Drill three screws on the top and bottom of each frame leaving 1/4″ sticking out

  • Step 2

    Attach the galvanized wire around the 3/4″ screws from top to bottom
    on each of the three frames
    *You will be attaching the branches to these wires
    Paint the edges of the room divider with the Rustic Chalky Finish paint
    *You can be messy with this color
    When dry, rub wax over the Rustic paint
    Paint the entire room divider in the Serene Chalky Finish and let dry

  • Step 3

    Sand the edges of the room divider to expose the Rustic color underneath and to give the room divider a shabby chic/antique feel
    Cut about 30 – 5″ long pieces of wire
    Attach the branches to the wire that was stretched from the top to the bottom
    of each frame of the divider
    *Clip the branches that extend over the edges
    Wrap the white Christmas tree lights around the branches and plug in!
