Day Ten of The 12 Posts of Christmas
I couldn’t possibly have been more honored when the beautiful and talented Erin from DIY Passion invited me to be a part of this super fun Christmas blog hop! We’ve all joined forces to bring y’all 12 fabulous Christmas posts chalk full of holiday inspiration! Even better, each project cost less than $24 to make because who wants to spending all of their hard earned holiday cash on crafting?!
I started by putting hubs to work cutting up a pallet for me and turning it into a Christmas tree. Easy-peasy, right?! Ha! I’m thinking one of us found this part easier than the other. All joking aside, it was pretty simple – cutting the boards at 45 degrees on each end, stacking them all to make a tree and then nailing some spare boards into the back to hold it all together. Here’s what we ended up with:
Now came the hard part (I kid!). I strung some jingle bells onto a string of twine, tying a knot around each one to keep it in place. I was pretty random with the placement, but I think it just adds to the rustic look. Then, I nailed a few random nails near the ends of some of the boards to string my new garland onto.
You could totally leave this as is and park it by your fireplace or in your entryway. BUT, in one of those rare, light-blub-moments, I thought it would give me a perfect way to display the beautiful Christmas cards that have started to roll in!
I may have sneaked (okay, I had to look this one up and apparently “snuck” is not a word – I know, I couldn’t believe it either! So “sneaked” it is! And yes, I’m aware that I just added multiple sentences in brackets, inside of yet another sentence) one of our own in there too! They’re pretty darn cute … can you blame me really?!
Now, as I mentioned earlier, this is only one of 12 fabulous Christmas crafts being shared through the first 12 days of December. Be sure to hop around to see what my talented bloggy friends have been up to too!!!
Thanks SO much for stopping by! Wishing you SUCH a fabulous day!
