We finished a little project today, so I thought I’d go ahead and show you these DIY wooden Christmas trees that we made. I know, I know. It’s not even Thanksgiving yet, but I knew that if we didn’t get these made that I’d be way behind with our Christmas decorating.
We made these to go on our front porch. Ever since we made and hung our wooden owl on our fall porch, I have really liked having something in this spot. Right now I just have them propped up to see how they look, and I’m fairly pleased with them. I’m not sure what kind of tree they are, but they look a little like cedar trees to me. When I was young, that’s exactly the kind of Christmas tree that we had. My dad would take me out into the woods, and he would let me select the tree for the year. I remember being so impatient as my sweet dad chopped down the tree. Those are precious memories.
The next thing I did was to take them outside and spray paint them with some green paint that I already had on hand. I didn’t get a photo of this step, but you can see the color that I used because I seemed to have gotten just as much on the tarp as I did the trees!
And here is one of them on the porch. Even though it is cold here in South Carolina, the grass in the yard is still green and the leaves remain on the trees. But some of them are beginning to turn so it won’t be long before the trees will be bare.
In case you are new to our blog, those are closet bifold doors that were going to be thrown away. We rescued them and put them on our porch over a year ago. We love the way that they make the porch feel like a room and also give us a little privacy.
