Rustic Christmas Trees

wooden trees from remnants pieces of wood. home decor

Hey there,

I'm finally able to sit down to put together this post. I've been most of all in a big cleaning mode, but I've been also decorating, DIY-ing, and doing the rest of the household chores, all at the same time. Kind of boring, who likes to clean? I know, nobody but, it has to be done.

Once a big project is completed, the rest of the house is a big jumbled mess...

This is how my living room looked after completing the dining room makeover. I'm now working on adding the grid - board & batten on that wall. But, I'm also cleaning this room from tools and stuff. :/

As soon as I have some more time I'll share the progress but, let's go to the project for today, the rustic Christmas trees.

The idea of making these trees appeared when cutting the pieces for the decorative toekick for the base cabinets, you can read about that project right HERE.

When putting together those scrap pieces, they gave me the idea of a tree. Some more cuttings were done to make them fit nicely...

And I even brought out my pile of small pieces of wood to create some more trees.

Basic tools and wood glue was all I needed to put them together.

They're very primitive, with not much sanding or painting.
