DIY Wooden Tree Decorations - scraps of us


I was playing train tracks with the boy a while ago, standing up the little trees, when I thought what cute Christmas tree decorations they could make. Don't worry though, I didn't take the boys ones! I found a lot of mixed trees and little road signs on Ebay, for just a couple of pounds.

You will need:

Wooden train track trees
Spray paint
Twine, string or ribbon
Bradawl
Pliers
Small screw eyes

First, using the bradawl, make a small hole in the top of the trees to make a starting hole for the screw eyes. Use the pliers to screw the hooks securely into the wood.

Using your chosen colours, spray paint the trees in a well ventilated area. I used these as I already had them from another project.

Once both sides have been sprayed, and they are completely dry, simply tie some lengths of twine or string on to the hooks and they're all ready for hanging!

  2. Another clever idea Caroline, they're lovely. I'm a big fan of all things wooden, especially re-using things. They're very stylish and simple. CJ xx
