I’ve got a super fun and easy Christmas project for you today…that I’m kinda in love with.
You need a little power tool love. But let me tell you..If I can do it…YOU can do it! I have this little thing…(jigsaw?) It’s pretty awesome and I can make alot of things with it without having to wait on my husband to decide to help me out! I just grabbed some wood I had…this is actually fencing that is about 6 inches wide..and pretty cheap! You can get a 6 foot piece for less than $4.
You just take off two of the edges and then cut at the bottom. (safety first! wear your glasses and watch your fingers!)
Then I just took my husbands drill and drilled in some holes at the top.
This whole process took me 3 minutes…start to finish. It’s really fast once you get over the scaredycatness of using power tools.
Then it’s time to decorate! There are so many options. If you get nice wood…you could just sand the edges and not even paint them. Or paint away…chalkboard paint….add vinyl, washi tape, ribbon, pictures, scrapbook paper, stickers. Throw on chipboard…add letters…a giant reindeer ….whatever you have around!!! Then you can use them to wrap presents…
this one is just chipboard…and you can reuse it by adding a new picture! this cute christmas tree took about 2 minutes to paint…let dry and throw on some washi tape! so quick!
I love putting things on top of packages…a candy cane…a little present. just something extra! these are perfect!
deal alert: cutest wrapping paper at the dollar store!
Or part of your christmas decor.
I love them so much. You could cut out a bunch of tags and have a great craft girls day and see what everyone creates!!!
