DIY Christmas Tree - A holiday decor tutorial [Video]



Note : Before anything, have you subscribed to TheWoodooz Youtube channel ? If not, I strongly urge you to click that subscription button right away. Up until now, there have been focus only on posts. But then I have taken it upon myself to make sure there are more and more videos of my tutorials that are available for you. And so, I request you to join TheWoodooz channel and spread the word too.

Traditionally, we do not celebrate Christmas. However, we thought the best way to have Little L respect all cultures equally was to get her to enjoy and rejoice festivals as much as Diwali and Pongal. And so the thought of having a mini Xmas celebration came up. And what better way to kick start than to have a tree in the living room during this season. Quite naturally, Preethi wanted something sustainable and easily storable. So, I decided on a DIY tree that can be easily fixed, dismantled and stashed away in the loft when not needed.



I had given myself about two days time to get this done. So went around looking for materials already available.
  • One Side Teak sheet for the tree shapes.
  • Small plywood plank for the base.
  • And a long 3 feet stem .
Incidentally, I had all of them at home which made life easier.

Besides this, I have used Gesso as a primer, Acrylic colors for the tree shapes and walnut stain for the base and stem. I had finally given a coat of Mod Podge as I wanted to avoid vanish this time. A mica cutter and an electric drill are the only tools I used.
