Three DIY projects made of wood for your Christmas decorations in a scandi look

Today there is an article from the series “What else I do” with three Christmas DIY ideas. In addition to my blog, I also produce and photograph a lot of DIY ideas for companies, which are then shown on their websites or in magazines. Working with Bondex products was a lot of fun this time because I used exactly my favorite Christmas colors for the wooden projects. Today I’ll show you Christmas tree decorations, a gift box and an Advent wreath. Maybe there is one or the other idea for your self-made Christmas decorations.

The balls not only look beautiful on a Christmas tree or a branch. If you use small wooden balls, they also make great gift tags.

You need:

  • Wooden balls in 4, 5 and 6 cm diameter (craft shop)
  • Chalk color in the color of your choice
  • Vintage color in gold / silver
  • paint brush
  • Hand drill
  • thin tape
  • Small eye hooks
  • Ribbons for hanging

How to do it:

Drill a hole in the ball with the hand drill and screw an eye hook into it. Cover the ball with the tape and paint it with chalk or vintage paint. After drying, mask and paint again.

I love all kinds of wooden boxes! Whether old or new, I have them in every room for storage – in the hallway for hats and scarves, in the living room for magazines. At Christmas such a painted wooden box is a beautiful advent calendar or you can stow your presents in it on the way to a family celebration.

You need:

  • a wooden box (hardware store)
  • Chalk paint in white and stone gray
  • large and small brushes
  • Vintage gold color
  • Star stencils
  • Stencil brush

How to do it:

Paint the wooden box with white chalk paint. Write “Merry Christmas” in gold with gold paint and your most beautiful primary school cursive (that’s my form of hand lettering: P). Finally, using a stencil, brush on a few gray stars here and there.

The idea is a quick Advent wreath made from a tree slice. Fortunately, I am sitting at the tree-slice spring and my father-in-law always gives me some sawed out when I need them. If you don’t have a nature boy in your family, you’ll find it on the Internet.

You need:

  • a tree slice, approx. 35 – 40 cm in diameter
  • Chalk paint in your desired shade (I used “happy green”)
  • Vintage silver color
  • paint brush
  • Stencil brush
  • Stencils numbers 1-4 and snowflakes (I only use the stencils because I can paint ZERO! If you can do that better than me, of course you don’t need stencils;))

How to do it:

Paint the tree slice with the chalk paint, leaving out the bark. After drying, you can arrange your candles for testing and then put on the stencils. Paint snowflakes and numbers on the tree disc with chalk or vintage paint. If you don’t like it that simple, you can of course decorate small Christmas tree balls or eucalyptus branches.

I made the three projects to my liking and had already planned them for my Christmas decorations. But the people at Bondex thought the same thing and had my projects sent to them. I’m glad we have the same taste :). Was there an idea for you or what are your favorite Christmas colors?
