Fancy Frugal Life: DIY Christmas Whimsical Pallet Tree & Wreath

DIY Christmas Whimsical Pallet Tree & Wreath

Hooray... it's not even Dec 1 and my house is decorated and CLEAN! It's a big deal for me.. Shhh.. no one breathe or dirty a dish!.... It's so great to wake up to those Christmas tree lights and have some morning coffee, isn't it?!
Here are two "whimsical" projects we completed this past weekend that I am super excited about!
I say "we" because my talented husband cut up the last of that pallet wood I had. plus some scraps into a Christmas tree!

First, he made those cuts for me and I spray painted aqua and red colors. After those were dry he used screws to nail the wood pieces all together. I stencils two white love birds and that was it. Bright, simple and cheery....love it!

My wreath took all of 10 minutes!

I bought a wood wreath form from Micheal's which already had holes in it. Then I bought a feather boa for 50% off at Hobby Lobby (with the holiday decor) for $5.00. I just twisted the boa around the entire wreath and tied the two ends. I already had red ornaments and used those traditional wire hangers to hang them on the wreath since it had holes in it. They worked perfect! No glue needed! I finished with a cute "Noel" ornament from Michael's at $1.50. That was the only store I hit up for black Friday! Ha :)

My entry way is so festive now!!

I threw in one of my handmade pedestal frames and sprayed these two deer (from Michael's). They were silver from a few years back.

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you all have started off the holiday season right! There's so much to do, but it's a blast (mostly).... :)

Love it?

Our Christmas train of thought seems to be on the same course. I am also using red, aqua and white this year... I was planning to make a wreath using white feathers tomorrow and I just finished my wood scrap tree the other day and will be blogging it tomorrow. My tree is pretty different from yours... but same idea nonetheless. Clearly you are as brilliantly crafty as me. Great work! Love your whimsical projects!
