Stenciled scrap wood Christmas and winter trees

Learn how to make these festive stenciled scrap wood Christmas and winter trees with Christmas and winter greetings with Funky Junk's Old Sign Stencils.

I thought Christmas was on Saturday. Glancing at the calendar today, it’s Wednesday! How did I get that wrong?! Maybe it’s a good thing after all, because I was just in the workshop cutting these cute little stenciled scrap wood Christmas and winter trees, totally oblivious to the shortened deadline!

Glad I did it now anyway, because this is my fav Christmas project this year thus far! These little trees put me in mind of some similarly yet colourfully made trees by the amazing Michael by Inspired by Charm HERE.

They were so ridiculously easy to make, and are perfect as a gift wrap embellishment, table-cape feature or cute Christmas display somewhere.

I LOVE making DIY projects from wood scraps, because not only do they look cool, reclaimed wood is a resource nearly everyone has some access to.

So let’s make these adorable stenciled scrap wood Christmas and winter trees, then I’ll show you a couple ways to display them!

.As one display idea, I placed them inside an antique metal toolbox, with some candles and faux snow.

The toolbox works as a tray of sorts so it’s easy to use the faux snow in a contained kind of way.

And the back up is handy so the wood pops against it.

Add a few candles and dollar store found bottle brush trees and you have a pretty cute Christmas vignette!

Hmmm… I think I have just the window sill for this…

As another simple candle idea, a couple white stenciled trees looked adorable on a white plate filled with faux snow.

The plate was set on top of a metal pedestal for a little more height. Made for a neat detail around the edges too!

I could also see these scrap wood trees as Christmas tree decorations, to decorate a tablescape, or used to embellish a wrapped gift.

  1. I love these! You know I don’t need something to do last minute, however I do need something to run down the center of our table for Christmas dinner. Something that won’t be in the way of looking over at the people across the table. I just bumped this up to the top of my to do list for today, I will report back……

  2. These are adorable Donna. Love the simplicity.
    I did up some white trees from scrap wood from one of your posts, and used some old window pulleys as bases. They turned out so cute.
    Maybe I’ll make more and stencil on them.

    Thanks for all the fun ideas you share on fb and here.
    Blessings and Merry Christmas
