Every year I’m looking to add more Christmas decor, with this year having an emphasis on rustic accents. So this year I decided on making a rustic holiday tree using some birch wood.
- birch wood
- star embellishment
- wood stand
- hot glue
This was seriously so easy to make, probably took me about 10 minutes start to finish. I purchased a set of 3 birch wood branches at the craft store. I first started off by cutting the wood to the desired sizes with a saw to make the shape of a tree.
Then using a large drill bit, I drilled holes in the middle of each piece of wood and started stacking them on the wood stand.
After I started placing the wood on the stand, I didn’t really like the base color. So I just freshened up the wood base with two coats of white paint.
After stacking all the wood in place, I just simply glued a decorative star on the top using a hot glue gun.
After it was all complete, I placed a little wreath around the bottom of it for more depth. And that is it! super easy right?
This simple little rustic holiday tree is just perfection, don’t you think? I love it, and it fits perfectly in our home! Can’t wait to bring it out year after year!
