DIY Stick Trees – 25 Days of Christmas Tour

 

DIY Stick Trees

I love these DIY Stick Trees that are out in stores right now, keeping with making this years Christmas decor I decided to make some of my own for the mantel in my office.

Supplies you will need are:

*Craft sticks (two different kinds see photo)
*Hot glue
*Styrofoam trees
*Blocks of wood for the tree trunk

DIY Stick Trees

 

Step 1: If you are using multiple blocks of wood hot glue them together.

Step 3: start adding your craft sticks to the tree working in a row.

Continue working in rows, remembering to overlap the last row.  Use the smaller shim pieces to fill in the gaps!

I wanted my trees to look a little more rustic so I ended up staining my trees in a pine stain.
