Day 5: O Christmas Tree Wall Hanging

O Christmas Tree Wall Hanging

While I was searching for the words to the song ‘O Christmas Tree’ I came upon an intriguing post that gave all the instructions for an O Christmas Tree wall hanging that was just a little bit different than simply printing out an image and inserting it into a frame.

It’s adorable, simple and inexpensive to make. Check out Ann’s Entitled Life here for the full instructions. You will need cardstock, a printer, cardboard, green yarn and a picture frame.

I am thinking I might need to make two and give one away at Christmas.

Trays like these can be found at almost every thrift store so this type of project is very inexpensive to produce. Continue reading DIY: Turn an old metal tray into a chalkboard message centre
