Wallpaper Tree – great for using up scraps. And samples

Wallpaper Tree
This is a brilliant tutorial from Country Living great for making use if those leftovers!

Any blank surface becomes an enchanted forest with this patterned mural made from wallpaper scraps.
Step 1: Using this photo for reference, sketch a basic tree trunk on the back side of a sheet of wallpaper (you may want to practice first on butcher paper). Once you have your desired shape and height, cut out.
Step 2: On the back of another piece of the same wallpaper, again using this photo as a guide, draw branches of various sizes and shapes—including a group of three attached limbs for the treetop. Cut out the branches.
Step 3: Apply the paper trunk, then the branches, to your wall with ready-made paste.
Step 4: While the tree dries, trim remnants of other brightly patterned wallpapers into leaf shapes — you’ll need about 60. Paste these to the wall so they appear to be sprouting from the branches.
Hope you enjoyed this simple yet effective tutorial!
