Christmas is just around the corner and there aren’t many pages left in your monthly calendar now. It’s time to think about Christmas decorations that would add some cheer to your home this Holiday season. But why spend your hard-earned money when you can undertake a small DIY project at home. Why not get the family together and use all those once-and-done wooden pallets for a tree that’s one-of-a-kind and special to your family. So, here is a brilliant DIY art project that’s perfect to bring essence of Christmas inside your home. Pallet board, patterned paper, glue and tan milk paint is all you need for this project.
Step-by-step procedure of this DIY project:
Step 1: Apply a thin layer of tan milk paint on pallet board to maintain its rustic ambiance and reveal those unique wood grains.
Step 2: Cut patterned paper into squares measuring 2”, 2.5”, 3”, 3.5”, 4”. Fold these cuttings diagonally to get a perfect triangle. Then cut the triangle diagonally and open those two pieces that you are finally left with.
Step 3: These five triangles are templates for your tree. Number these triangle 1 to 5, and line them up on the board in descending order. Then cut six triangles from the smaller shape, which will become the leader of your Christmas tree, and eight each from the remaining four.
Step 4: Finally, you need to stick them on the pallet board with glue. Once all your triangles are perfectly place in shape of a tree, you need to attach them firmly to the board with glue. And your Christmas tree is ready to put up a perfect show at Christmas Eve.
Making one such Christmas tree out of pallet wood and paper is easy and cheap – usually free. Plus it gives you wonderful family memories to be cherished and a chance to save some trees this holiday season.
