[Frame Friday: Wooden Christmas Tree Frame by Under the Table and Dreaming]

I am loving this holiday blogging time of year, aren't you?! I am constantly inspired by so many creative Christmas craft projects! This past week I was really inspired by Stephanie Lynn over at Under the Table and Dreaming. She made a rustic yet very festive Christmas tree out of shims and displayed in a wooden frame made out of wood scraps. How resourceful!

So basically she started out with this:

[1x1 scrap pieces of wood]

And this:

[shims were soaked in water, stained with green acrylic paint, soaked again, and wiped with a paper towel]

And it all ended up like this:

 [Pretty cool, huh? She adhered some red & white striped fabric to some cardboard for a Christmasy background, then glued everything on to make a Christmas tree.]

I am really loving this project! And the best part about it is that it looks very durable. That's always a bonus in my house when all of the Christmas decorations get crammed in a box and thrown into storage. Lol!
