DIY ~ My Christmas Tree Inspired Chevron Paintings

Hey lovelies!  I hope the holiday season is treating you well :)  It's so close, I can't believe it!  I'm especially looking forward to the week off of work I'm taking between Christmas and New Years.  In the meantime, I've been doing a ton of crafts!  I love decorating, and I'm hardly done :)
If you follow me on twitter, you may have seen these.  My tree matches absolutely nothing in my condo.  It sticks out like a sore thumb I swear.  So I wanted to do some paintings to tie the colors in to my decor a bit more.  I had these two plain canvases I got awhile back in a pack at Hobby Lobby, and had all the paint on hand, so it was easy!  All else you'll need is a ruler and pencil to make the lines.  You could also use painters tape so your edges are cleaner, but I opted to do it all free handed.  Here's the how-to:

I think the metallic silver paint really makes them come alive.  Now I need to incorporate the colors into the rest of my decor....stay tuned :)
