Next, you’re going to begin placing the wood chips on the canvas. Use your ruler mark the center of the canvas. For an 8×10, I marked 4 inches in the center and 2 inches down from the top. That’s where I began placing the top of my Christmas tree.
I set the entire tree on the canvas first and then glued the chips down. Seeing where the chips will go first allows for easy placement and will allow you to see the finished product before making the commitment to glue it down.
