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.
- Gold Glitter tree sticks ( Walmart under $4)
- Small wood blocks
- Wood glue
- Behr Paint
Once you have all your supplies, start pulling the tree’s off the sticks. The paper comes off fairly easy. Grab one of your wood blocks and start drilling a hole in the center. Your drill bit should be the same size as the metal tree stick ( ie: not big).
TIP >>>> do NOT drill all the way through the block.
Now comes the fun part, PAINT!!!! I am using white paint .. you can pick any color you want. I always buy Behr Premium Plus Ultra.
Using a small paint brush, I painted the entire wood block. Be careful you don’t get any paint on the tree. You can always use a little washi tape around the bottom to prevent any paint getting on the stem.
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 !!!!
