What’s old is new again? It’s been awhile since these trees have seen daylight…they’ve been tucked away in a storage bin for years. My husband crafted these wooden trees among many other wooden trinkets in the late 80′s. He enjoyed spending time with his wood working equipment…that scroll-saw got a real workout at times. I thought I would give these trees a fresh new look with a coat of paint.
You see where I started painting the backside of the trees and realized …I needed a “before picture”. Once the paint dried I flipped them over and quickly pulled out the camera. I’m not sure what type of wood he used, maybe oak? Very sturdy!
I spray-painted them white, let them dry, then I took my trusty sanding block and removed some of the paint from the surface and around the edges.
I stacked them and tied them with jute and attached a fun bell. I like these frosted bells so much that I didn’t mind standing in line at Jo Anne’s Fabrics for 20 minutes to pay. Yikes! This was the day after Thanksgiving and the store was extremely busy that day, but that didn’t deter me from making my purchase.
If you are looking for some filler for your hurricanes or even a mason jar, these bells are a fun option for you.
I love all of these fun Christmas crafts and had to share my latest project with you all. Please come back soon and see what’s happening here at Home.
