Hello! I had the pleasure of receiving the Very Merry Trees Paper Project kit from DCWV, such a super idea to have all the supplies ready to go in a package so you just have to get crafty and creative!
I started out the project by making the trees! I put on a few good scrappy videos on Youtube and folded the pre-scored circles that make up the trees. The projects come with instructions which are very clear and easy to follow. The circles were easy to fold and they didn’t take me long to make! I used my glue gun as they recommended for putting the trees together, again it was pretty easy.
Once I had all my trees made, I had to decide how to use them! I had a few ideas, but finally settled on a crate full of “fresh cut” trees! My crate is from the dollar store (4$) and made from wood, it is approx 12″ long, 6″ wide and 4.5″ deep. I painted it white and distressed it with a bit of grey paint. I made the farm fresh sign in photoshop to fit the front of the crate. I wrapped some string and twine around the crate and added some styrofoam inside to stick the trees into!
I love how it turned out! Be sure to check out all the cute holiday projects DCWV has this year!
