How to Make a Scrap Wood Christmas Tree Sign

For this Scrap Wood Christ­mas Tree Sign we are using one of the patent pend­ing Roost and Restore Nest­ing Box­es which you can read about here. They are also, avail­able to pur­chase if you wish to make you own inter­change­able sign. The fun part about these Nest­ing Box­es is they are inter­change­able and pro­vide THE per­fect base for all you home made sig­nage. Sim­ply pur­chase the frame, dec­o­rate your inserts and change them out for the seasons! 

If you’re like me, then you love mak­ing décor for your home. Not just cute lit­tle crafts here and there but true, qual­i­ty décor using upcy­cled items or even scrap wood. This project checks all my box­es in regards to build­ing some­thing beau­ti­ful for my home.

Start by stain­ing or paint­ing your Nest­ing Box to suit the style or theme you wish to con­vey. Clas­sic stain and white craft paint gives this sign all the rus­tic Christ­mas vibes.

Next, cov­er your scrap blocks (mine are cute at 6″,5″,4″,3″,2″) with scrap­book paper and mod podge. This step can be mod­i­fied how ever you like. If you would rather paint your scrap wood block tree that feel free to do so! Just cus­tomize your look!

Once the blocks are dry, use a sand­ing block to dis­tress the edges. This adds to the rus­tic feel of this sign.

Once you have your blocks ready, sim­ply hot glue them, hap­haz­ard­ly to the insert of the Nest­ing Box and embell­ish as desired. The mix­ing of pat­terns is what I think makes this tree so stink­ing cute! What do you think? I mean, why chose one pat­tern when you can have them all!

    I absolute­ly love this project! I think your nest­ing box­es are inge­nious, too! What size nest­ing box did you use for this project?
