On The First Day of Christmas...

Beyond the Picket Fence shared with me, a scrappy little Christmas tree.  Ok, this is not made with things from the thrift store, but rather with scraps from the scrap box that sits next to the saw.  The painted pieces were previously painted, I didn't pull out any paint for this project.

 And yes, this is a twist on last year's tree, but I like this scrappy little one better.  This is  much smaller, about 10"x 16" and hangs on the wall.

 I used the nail gun to attach the boards, but you could use glue as well.  A little stain over the top finished off an imperfect, scrappy piece--my favorite way for something to be!  Find more ideas at CRAFT and at Donna's Funky Junk Interiors
