DIY Outdoor Tree

Don't forget to stop by and Like my Facebook Page! DIY Vintage Chic.
This year I was wanting some yard decorations to go with the Lighted Presents from last year. I came across this Hanging Window Display from BHG and thought I'd make a variation of it for outside.

Scrap wood
Green Paint
Eye hooks

I used some scrap wood I had leftover to create a tree.
Been a while since I took Geometry class. It was a little bit of
a struggle. :/
I painted the tree. Spray paint would work too. It was too cold outside for me to want to stay out there.
Next I used a thin layer of Mod Podge and then sprinkled glitter on the tree. {Spray glue wood work as well}
I drilled a few small holes into the sides of the tree and screwed in the eye hooks
And then thread some ribbon through the hooks.
I hung a few ornaments and it was ready to go!
 See how to make the Lighted Presents here. And stay tuned to learn about the deal I got on the black urn in this pic.
Thanks for stopping by!
