Such a fun idea to make a Christmas Tree our of springs, and you can DIY your own faux springs!

This last weekend we pulled out Christmas decorations. We will be heading out of town this week and won’t be back until December so getting out Christmas decorations just made sense! I am super excited over the two new pieces that I created using my Consumer Crafts order. 

First off, the faux spring Christmas Tree plaque

  • A wooden plaque (I used one I’ve had for like 5 years)
  • 16 gauge black wire
  • Wire cutters or needle nose pliers

Such a fun idea to make a Christmas Tree our of springs, and you can DIY your own faux springs!

I started by creating the springs. I twisted the wire around a rolaids bottle, literally.It was the perfect size that I wanted . So I would twist the wire around the top of the bottle 3 times and cut it using my needle nose pliers. I continued on 15 more times (a total of 16 “springs”) and then laid them out on the board to figure out how I wanted them spaced.

Once I had the tree all laid out, I had to attach them. Using a staple gun, I attached the top part of the spring to the board.

I LOVE the natural, simplistic and rustic feel that this tree brings to the decor. And to go along with it, I made a jar full of pine! LOL, that sounds funny, but I am totally loving how it turned out. 

I started by painting a mason jar brown, then two coats of white over the top. Once the paint is dry you can sand off a little bit here and there to expose the brown. Then I wrapped some jute around the top of it and attached the big red bell.

Then I put both the pine branches & berry picks into the jar and spread them out until it filled out how I wanted it.

Yup, I’m loving all of this and it’s just screaming rustic Christmas to me!
