Deck the halls with very crafty Christmas decor from Rust-Oleum.
The possibilities are endless. Whether you’re updating baubles, creating pretty reusable wreaths or crafting homemade ornaments, DIY decorations are sure to fill your home with cheer.
In this make, Hester from hestershandmadehome.com shows you just how easy it is to create beautiful scandi christmas trees using Rust-Oleum’s range of craft friendly paints.
On your sheet of wood, draw two triangles, ensuring they are the same size.
Saw or cut the triangles out of the wood. Hester used a saw to cut her 3 mm thick balsa wood.
Make as many shapes as you want! Hester made all different sizes, some narrow and tall, some small and wide.
You now need to make the slots to put the tree together. Draw a line down the middle of your triangle and make a mark right in the centre of this line (Hester’s shapes are 21 cm high, so her mark is 10.5 cm high).
Saw or cut out the slots and sand all edges smooth.
Decorate your trees with Rust-Oleum paints! You can paint the trees before or after you slot them together.
Hester chose Rust-Oleum Painter’s Touch 20ml brush pots in Black, White, Bronze, Cinnamon and Dark Green. Painter’s Touch can be applied to wood, metal and ceramic. plus it’s and waterbased, making it ideal for small craft projects.
She added some must-have festive sparkle with Rust-Oleum Glitter Ultra Shimmer, a highdensity glitter paint, available in three glittering finishes, Gold, Silver and Rose.
Finally, she used the Rust-Oleum Metallic Leafing Pen in Gold to add details such as stripes, circles and crosses. Once complete, place your trees on the mantle and marvel at your hand-made Christmas creation.
