Christmas decorating with DIY gold glitter trees

It’s slowly beginning  to look like Christmas around the house. Last year I bought a white Christmas tree and when I pulled it out over the weekend it was all yellow. A couple cans of white spray paint and 24 hours to dry it was back to normal.

While I waited for the big tree, I  gathered some supplies to make gold glittered tree’s for our mantel.

I was provided product by BEHR to write this post but the thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.

SUPPLIES

  1. Gold Glitter tree sticks ( Walmart under $4)
  2. Small wood blocks
  3. Wood glue
  4. Drill
  5. Behr Paint

TIP >>>> do NOT drill all the way through the block.

With the Ultra paint I only needed one coat ( high five) .

Every year I decorate the fireplace with little tree’s . Last year they were all shades of pink. This year it’s green and gold.

I like tradition + change.

If I don’t get to any other decorating, at least the tree’s are up !!!!
