Ah, Christmas time, yet another opportunity to stay home and make stuff. In this case I spent an entire afternoon, and almost the night, making two wooden christmas trees. All the process and lots of talking (if you speak some Greek) on the following video.
The wood I used is chipboard and is very cheap. The first of the two trees needed to be cut with the jig saw to make it into the shape I wanted. However if you don’t have a jig saw it’s not very hard to use a hand saw.
I, then, wrapped it with some thin rope and over them I used some black spray paint. After it got dry, I unwrapped it (more accurately, I cut the rope!) I used some spray glue and glued some silver moons. Finally I wrapped it with white ribbon.
The second one I made with nails. I drew the shape of the tree on the wood, and then used nails on it. Then, starting from the top, I wrapped red rope among the nails.
As simple as that. The piece of wood I bought costed me one euro, while all the other materials I used, I already had. If you get an inspiration and make something, I’ll be very happy if you send it to me at [email protected]. I’ll post it here. 🙂
So, Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays!
