Hi crafters, I hope you’re having fun decorating for the holidays. I know it’s mid-December but I wanted to squeeze in another “Recreate” project for you. I saw these at Urban Outfitters for $14. Mine ended up being less than $7. These wooden tabletop trees make great additions to your holiday decor at home, in the office, or as centerpieces. I created three tree templates for you to try out, download the template and make your own!
You can create any pattern and pick any colors you like. I freehanded a chevron pattern on mine. If you don’t have craft paint, you can use metallic Sharpies, but they are not as vibrant as paint. Test the different media on scrap pieces of wood before you start decorating. You can also use decorative tape and other embellishments.
I also created a taller tree by adding another row at the bottom. I used the cap of the paint to draw circles on the wood and painted those silver and gold. I think this turned out great!
If you can’t find craft wood, you can experiment with cardboard and other materials. The possibilities are endless. That’s it for now! Have fun crafters!
