Make pallet Christmas tree holiday decor this year!

IMG_2996Bright and bold colors are in again this Christmas. I used an unexpected palette of colors to create these fun pallet Christmas trees. You can see my project when it was originally published on the DecoArt site here. That’s where you will find links to the supplies used here as well as detailed instructions.

Supplies Used to make Pallet Christmas Tree Holiday Decor:

  • Unfinished Wood Pallet Tree (purchased at Michael’s)
  • Americana® Multi-Surface Acrylics: Chartreuse, Coastal Waters, Pink Cadillac,
  • Americana® Stencils: Retro Mod (12″ x 12″)
  • Dazzling Metallics®: Shimmering Silver, White Pearl
  • Pearlizing Medium™
  • Dimensional Effects

I just love to use my stencils with texture products from DecoArt to create with. They offer a variety of pastes, and I used Dimensional Effects for this project. Spread on a smooth, thin layer with a palette craft tool and let it dry. tree step 1b

The paste dries to a paintable finish. You could tint it, too, but I usually just paint over it.

I embellished the tree with unfinished painted wood pieces like stars and circles. I painted them with metallic paint.

This color combo is so fun!

I brushed on pearlizing medium to give the trees some shimmer to match the metallic paint on the accent pieces.

A little wood glue to hold it all together! Aren’t they fun? I gave mine to people as presents. They look really fun when you use a dot of hot glue to attach them to the front of a present. Wrap a large box with plain white paper or kraft paper, and attach this fun, colorful tree to the front. Instant merriment!
