I wanted to change up my Christmas mantle a bit this year, but I didn’t really want to spend any money. Well I didn’t want to have to go out and spend anything, so I only used resources that I had in my garage and craft room! I decided to create a DIY framed sign and these DIY Wooden Triangle Christmas Trees.
My trees started with some 2×8’s and 2×10’s that I had on hand.
The hardest part of this project was getting the triangles cut, these thick boards are not the easiest to cut so precisely. First I drew out the triangle by finding the middle of what would be the base and then measuring up how tall I wanted the trees to be. I put a dot in the middle of the board and used a ruler to connect the middle dot to the corners of the base of the trees. Then we used a miter saw to cut the trees out.
I didn’t get an action shot of the staining process….but I used Minwax wood stain I had on hand. I grabbed three different colors and mixed and matched sizes and colors. I gave each tree a bit of sanding when the stain was dry. You can clear coat them as well, I like to use wipe on poly or just a clear spray for these kinds of projects!
Then you have these adorable wood Christmas trees. Although, my husband says they look more like mountain peaks. Which I’m not hating either, but to me they are whimsical rustic trees.
What do you see? Trees or Mountains? Either way, I love them! They were just the right bit of rustic and neutrals I was needing this year. I whipped up the Christmas tree sign and the DIY Wooden Triangle Christmas Trees all with supplies that I had on hand, not an extra dime spent. Now that’s a Christmas miracle!!!
