Pine Christmas Trees

As I was rummaging through some of my Christmas decorations, I found these wood trees that I cut out of scrap pine many, many years ago. 

I had stained them with Puritan Pine by Minwax.  I thought I was so clever when I made them.  They have been retired for some time now, but I thought I could spruce them up a bit and incorporate them into my holiday decorating this year.

So, I stained them with a dark walnut stain by Minwax ...

and then painted a few of trees with the color sandbar.  Once the paint dried I sanded the edges and the surface to expose the dark stain underneath.  Here they are on my shelves.

Do you have any old decorations that can be reused??  Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!



  1. I love your wooden trees! Love how you have used them in your setting as well.
