Ohhhh, Christmas Trees!
These DIY Christmas Trees were so fun to make! Using any scrap wood you have on hand will do, along with any embellishment you can find, any holiday paint color you’d like, and you’ll have beautifully decorated holiday trees! Just like these.
There is no easier way to explain how to do these DIY Christmas Trees, it’s just that simple. Use your imagination and you will soon be making dozens of these beauties.
I love trees to decorate the holiday with, decorated or not, lights or not, they are just gorgeous anyway you display them. I always leave one tree up all year without decorations, but I have it on a timer for the lights to go on and off, in a front room of my home.
I had pine wood pieces on hand from other projects, already painted gray. Did you know gray is a perfect base (primer) for white? It helps with better coverage, especially with lighter colors.
Measure and cut your wood pieces the size of your choice, I did 7″ and 11″ trees.
I had random things to embellish with. Broken trim pieces removed from furniture, flat wood round dots and I also used hot glue to create a design (don’t burn your fingers like I did “ouch”).
See how easy that looks! Just take your glue gun and start decorating. Then comes the paint and touches of magic to bring them to the final look.
Ohhh, Christmas Trees!
You can see I added jute string to some, as well as a gold foil to one and added some texture to a couple trees.
Here is what you will need to complete your DIY trees:
- Wood of your choice, cut to size
- White paint, Fluff by Dixie Belle (or your color choice)
- Glue gun | a simple one will do
- Embellishments | half wood rounds, soft jute string, etc.
- Gemstone Mousse, for color accents
- Top coat, Clear Coat Gloss
- Sea Spray
- Gold foil | layer your top coat and stick on the foil pieces
