Bead Board Christmas Trees

Remember the Reversible Bead Board Pumpkins I made in October. Well I decided to make some Christmas Trees for December.

   For in depth instructions check out the pumpkin post

Here's the paint I used:
Green Paint - (Folk Art's Thicket)
Staining Antiquing Medium (Americana) (This can be found in the paint section at Roberts)
Brown Paint (Americana's Burnt Umber)

 Download the Christmas Tree Patterns here.

I love them, but I'm thinking they need a little embellishment. I need some ideas. What would you use to decorate them?  

Linking up to these parties.

This project has been featured!!!

  1. This is so clever! You could always add some "garland" with paint and jewels/beads for the ornaments. So very cute.

  10. I adore bead board. This is a fabulous fact, I think I have some beadboard in the basement. hmmmm...


  11. Love these!!!! Good idea :)
    You could use buttons for ornaments? I like the idea of tin or rusty ornaments/star. I've seen epsom salt on somethings to make it look frosty and snowy and that has been really cute too.....

    I'm your newest follower too!!!
