Christmas tree - DIY

söndag, december 09, 2012

Second Sunday of Advent! And I am so excited. Today I have a guest post at My Scandinavian Home blog. I am sharing my latest Christmas DIY project that I have created together with my man. Yes he get´s involved in one way or the other. But I think he actually likes is.
This Christmas tree DIY idea came to me when I saw a picture of a similar one over at Tierlantijn but couldn't order it. I hope this little Christmas DIY inspires you too! :)

This Christmas tree is quite neat. You can make it as big as you like, and can have it both indoors and outdoors. And the best thing is that it lights up any dark space at home without needles all over the floor…..And you can use it year after year!!!  

       What you need:
  •  One wood panel approximately 7 cm wide for the tree trunk, which you can make as tall as you like ( mine is about 1 meter)
  • A number of 7 cm wide wood panels for the branches (I have used 7). Cut the branches in staggered lengths so that they form the shape of the tree you would like. I made a triangular template in the shape I wanted and then cut the branches according to this.
  • Nail the branches onto the trunk at an approximate distance of 5 - 7 cm
  • I used a special grey wood stain (not paint) to give the wood an old touch

Today we will buy our real Christmas tree as well, because I like to have both!!! I would love to hear about your Christmas DIY projects as well. Maybe it is interior projects or is it your best cooking recipe that you do every Christmas? Leave a comment below! Happy 2nd Sunday of Advent to you all and see you soon again.
