Nordic X~mas Tree Chalkboard

 

Nordic Christmas Tree Chalkboard

I always loved the Nordic X~mas trees and designs! Like this amazing Nordic X~mas Tree Chalkboard.  It’s a simple, clear and just natural style. I think, I could move to Norway, Sweden or Finland no problem. Friends of ours moved to Oslo and love it! Ok, it does get cold but just thinking of the beautiful houses and all makes me feel like I would love it too! 

But we are in the beautiful South of Spain, where the sun always smiles and if you walked into my home you’d be thinking you were up North! Not only at Christmas. 

So the other day I really felt like having a Nordic X~mas Tree for my holiday deco and came up with this one. I used the back of a normal white frame I have, which usually holds the beautiful Gustav Klimt Print “the kiss”. 

I didn’t have a big paper sheet at hand and was too lazy to go and buy one. I just wanted to get started. So I painted the back board of the frame with chalkboard paint to then draw the Nordic X~mas Tree with chalk. I can still put any kind of art into the frame after the holidays, or just draw something else if I want to, you get it, chalkboard. Except in a frame. 

So all I used was:

~ Back of a frame

~ Chalkboard Paint

~ Chalk

I started by finding the middle of the board and then just drawing a long line til the top. After, I added branches on each side. Really easy to do. Then, I filled them out with chalk.

Using my fingers, I brushed over everything I drew.

When I had the tree ready, I just added decorations of all kind to the branches. You can really let your imagination go wild here and add what ever you like.

    That looks really effective Katrin. It looks really authentic. I can’t believe you drew this by hand, if I did this, it would look like a child had drawn it – ha ha!

      Thank you Sally! I love drawing, especially on Chalkboard cause you can just erase if it doesn’t turn out the way you want it to! 😉

    Katrin, I love it! I am a sucker for chalkboard art and you are so good at doodling, and free hand drawing. It’s so pretty. And the frame really accents the chalk, making it pop off the black chalkboard. Very festive. I can’t wait to see what you draw on it next!!
