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!
