Scrap Trim to a Christmas Tree

Christmas decor is up..
 and Oh, so pretty.  I absolutely love this time of year. :o)

Well, I decided to share this simple DIY project I did in a very short amount
of time.
I used a piece of faux wood looking baseboard trim and using my compound miter saw simply
angled the ends..
and as I cut them I placed them in a 'tree' shape.. no measuring, just eyeballing
it cutting each one smaller as I went.
I wasn't looking for a perfect 'tree' after all.

I also cut the backing piece to use to attach my "branches"..

Here it is all placed together:

Then I simply attached it together using screws.
Then placed it in a container and added some florals.

  1. This is so cute! And such a resourceful way to reuse scrap wood/trim. Thanks for sharing. :)

  2. This is just adorable. I've got tons of scrap wood that I am planning to make some things with some day and this one looks quick and easy! I am envious of you having your decorations up! I am not doing much this year since I am leaving on Christmas day. I am ready to get a few things up though! I too love this time of year...:)Have a great weekend.

    Hugs, Vicky

    1. Thanks Vicky, making this tree was fast, it really just took minutes.. and i like how it turned out. I really intended to paint it when I started, but then decided I liked the wood grain in the end and simplicity of it the way it was. :0)
      We always get out decorations up early.. guess I am a kid at heart and just love Christmas time and all the decor.. and my daughter helped talked me into it. Ha.
      I hope you have a great weekend too!
