Scrappy Wooden Tree

These little trees are all over Pinterest. They
are so darn cute, I'm trying one for myself today.

and adding junky decorations to this plain tree was just a given...


Finding scrap wood to use in my basement
was no problem at all. One of the
scrap boards I had down there was actually
a Seasons Greetings sign that was the perfect size.


The junky detail was the fun part... 
the round ornaments were old shower rings and the star was cut from the bottom of an old galvanized planter.


I built a base using scrap wood and a bundt pan for decoration.


I assembled all my pieces then gave the tree
a quick coat of glittery green. I watered it down
to just the right consistency to make it a pretty
green golden-like stain.

My cute little tree is ready to be one of 
my first outdoor decorations this year.


Seasons Greetings!
