DIY Colorful Christmas Trees
We have had so many compliments on our DIY trees!! You can totally as well!!!
Use up a bunch your scrap wood and any paint that you want to use up. The best part is that you can store these trees away easily in a small stack for the next years to come.
Scrap pieces of wood of various lengths and widths
A thin piece of wood for the back
Various paints and decorations (if you choose to decorate)
Make the DIY Christmas Trees…
Lay out the wood and make some cuts if needed to get the tiered effect.
Paint the pieces all different colors or do them the same color. Honestly, leave it up to your child and let them have ownership of their creativity. The boys chose what colours they wanted and I spray painted. If I used paint to roll, they would’ve done it.
Then what you’ll do is you will assemble them.
You will have to help the kiddo by holding the pieces of wood as the wood will spin a bit with the rotation of the screw. I let my boys decide how they wanted their tree to look. One wanted the ‘branches’ spaced out and the other wanted them all together with no spacing.
Then, have various decorations or paint to spruce up their trees. My boys didn’t choose to do anything to their trees (they liked them just this way). Provide the decorations or ideas for the kiddos, but let them decide.
They will totally be proud of their DIY masterpiece!!!
We had such a great time making these and we hope you do too!
