December is here! You know what that means, right? Lots of Christmas and holiday creations. How about a Christmas creations in pallet style?
I grabbed a pallet board and lightly sanded the wood to remove all hairy like wood fibers. I have pallet boards with more hairy fibers then my husband has on his head. Shh, don’t tell him that. But, it’s true! Some of the boards need a lot of sanding before you start any project and this was the case with this project.
It’s an easy fix with a palm sander.
After sanding, cut the boards into smaller pieces. I simply eye-balled the size I wanted and then cut each piece the same size. No measuring needed, just cut a way.
Christmas trees are my favorite decoration for Christmas. I’m not a huge holiday decorator, but when it comes to the Christmas tree, I could have one for every room.
I started by painting a tree using green and brown paint. Then, I added snow to the branches and to the ground under the tree. Using the tip of my brush, I added the heavy snowfall. To finish it off I added a clear coat glitter paint to the branches and in between.
After the paint has dried completely, just seal with poly to protect.
I hope everyone had a wonderful week. For those here in the US, hopefully you have recovered from the turkey coma and are ready to celebrate the upcoming winter holidays.
Stop back this week for Scraptastic Saturdays to share your holiday creations. Thanks for stopping by.
I’m sharing this post with some amazing linky parties.
