I’m sure you all think my scrap wood pile is never ending! HaHa! I wish that was the case! I just happened to score big last time I was at my parents place so I am taking full advantage of it and figured why not make a Christmas tree since I just happened to have the perfect pieces to do so.
I started off by painting my pieces as shown in the picture. My longest piece is 11.5 inches, my second piece is 9 inches, third piece is 7.5 inches, and my top piece is 4 inches. Now, like I said this is just what I had laying around so don’t feel like you have to have these exact lengths to make this work! Remember it’s a “scrap wood” project so it does not have to be perfect!
Next I took my bottom board and my third board and traced them on my scrapbook paper. I then cut my paper pieces out and mod podged them on my pieces of wood.
I put one layer of mod lodge on my board and the layer on top of my scrapbook paper. The mod podge will dry clear so don’t worry about that.
Once all of your paint and your mod podge is dry you can take your sanding block and distress your wood if you desire. I of course distressed mine!
Next I hit glued all my pieces together and added my wood star at the top. I found these stars at Walmart in the craft section and knew I had to buy them! They come in a bag of 4 or 5.
It’s cute just like this but I thought it was still missing something…so I added a bow of course! I just used some buffalo check ribbon and burlap I had on hand and made a quick little bow to finish it off! Love how this turned out! I think I’m officially ready to decorate for Christmas! HaHa!
