It’s time to deck the halls! Of course, Christmas lights are gorgeous and magical….but they do nothing for your home in the harsh light of day. Solution? I went to my wood pile to scrounge around for some ideas.
Yikes! It’s grown! I swear I’m not a hoarder, just a treasure hunter. Can you see a gem lurking in there? How about an uber cute Christmas tree with a flare of barn-chic? Enter my jigsaw, table-saw, screwdriver, paint, sander, glue, glitter and ramshackle pieces of hardware. 🙂 Ahhhh, the recipe for a fun hour of creativity!
First, I measured out random pieces of scrap wood and figured out my basic design. Then I busted out the silver spray paint to add some holiday razzle-dazzle. Wow, that was bright! Time for a light sanding to cut down on that glare…ahhh, now I was loving the color and texture.
Onto the assembly.
I had made these glitter clothes pins a while ago and thought that this would be the perfect piece to make a home for my glittery little cuties. This will be such a precious way to display Christmas cards: on a barn-wood Christmas tree. Now for the tree-topper…
Talk about some rustic charm for Christmas!
Btw, this turned out soooo dang cute, that I made a second one with a slight variation.
Keep tuning in on how to Zest Up your holidays for the tail-end of 2012!
