This Diy Yard Stick Christmas Tree was made from (you guessed it) a yardstick cut in different lengths 😀 I had first seen a yardstick repurposed into a Christmas tree over at Organized Clutter and had to make one of my own. Keep reading to see how I put my own spin on the repurposed yardstick Christmas tree.
How To Make A Diy Yard Stick Christmas Tree
First cut the yard stick in different lengths to form a tree, and pre-drill your holes for attaching the diy yard stick Christmas tree together.
Then age the pieces with my wood aging solution, or you could water down some paint for a stain if you wanted to give it more color.
Next cut 12 pieces of wire in approximately 1 1/2″ lengths, then form the wire pieces into the shape of a large staple. These will be used as the ties to hold the tree together.
Line up the yard stick tree pieces and insert one end of wire in one side of your yard stick piece, and the other end into the other side of the next piece.
Using your needle nose or round nose pliers twist a little loop in each end to connect the pieces securing the pieces in place.
Continue adding the handmade staples until you have all the pieces of the diy yard stick Christmas Tree wired together.
For hanging the tree cut a piece of wire 5″-6″ long, and form a large wrapped loop at one end then connect it to the top of your tree.
Then give the end of the wire that is connected to the tree a little twist to hold it in place.
Now it’s time for the fun part decorating the tree. Use your imagination to see what you can come up with for decorating the yard stick tree.
I used things that I had on hand, like buttons, wood bird, heart, star, and pine greenery.
A twine bow was added to the star,
and small pieces of pine wire sprigs were then hot glued haphazardly onto the tree.
I think my Diy Yardstick Christmas Tree turned out pretty cute! What do you think?
