PJ 310 features DIY Christmas Trees!

Every Friday, 7 PM through Sunday 11 PM Pacific

Hello, and welcome back to another sure to be festive junk gathering!

Well, I’m pretty pleased with myself for making a couple things this week. And one of them being my reclaimed wood Christmas tree. So… why not theme this weekend’s linkup around it?

This weekend there are two linkups below. And as always, I’ll be gathering features from both for Facebook features all weekend long!

First up, let’s see what DIY Christmas trees you’ve been making…

Ananda sure knows how to reach my junk lovin’ sign fanatic heart. This idea is golden! Or… rusty?

Thank-you for this cool creation, Kathy. I officially have my rust door pull fix now! Why does this stuff look like irresistible candy to me?

Yet another reason to hoard your scrap wood. These wood trees are adorable, Jenny!

Ohhhh Betsy, I may have to put my chippy wood aside, and turn a little more blingy myself. Aren’t these the most gorgeous lamp parts turned Christmas trees you’ve ever seen?

Mary, now this is my kinda cooking! Dumpling presents too! What a charming base for a tree!

Leave it to Marian to create an irresistible pom pom garland for a simple chalkboard tree. I want a chalkboard just to draw a tree now! Part of her amazing HGTV series.

This gorgeous thing is a rescued chair.

Can you imagine KariAnne in a lifeguard chair, overseeing a sea filled with junk? She’s on her tip toes, hand over her brow, shading her face from the sun, while sporting thrifted aprons, spun into the most charming of swim suit wraps I’m sure. 

WAIT… THERE IT IS! Then she DASHES off with her broken inner-tube because she crafted it into waterskis and a speed boat, to fill it up with more broken… anything.

I think I need to tell my junk yard to grow a palm tree or two. I love this fantasy!

KariAnne is a master storyteller, so I felt I needed to spin a tale for her for a change.

This tray is too cute for words. Thanks for today’s perfect green patina on metal fix, Beth! I’ll take an 8 foot one please.

Here is Susan’s version without the ornaments! I just love the large whisps of greens and the sharp red!

Craftberry Bush’s gorgeous artwork makes this little snow scene in a crate, complete with flickering firepit, come to life! Full details of the art and project in the blog post.

This cute, quick idea is another take on the twig garlands I’ve made the past couple of years. So fun to make!
