Are you still trimming up? We finished yesterday – the final touched a upcycled pallet christmas tree for the front porch. Our porch is often neglected, and not very welcoming. I was determined to give it a little personality for the Christmas season. We had an old pallet waiting to be transformed, so this was the ideal opportunity.

I started by sanding then painting it white with Rustoleum chalk paint. I then sanded to bring back some of the wood.

Next was a consultation period re the tree being white or green, the concensus to go for a white tree. I created a newspaper tree to act as a mask.

Christmas Tree Paper Mask

Using temporary craft spray glue I placed the paper tree onto the pallet. Next I spray painted the surround with green paint (left over from the round cake tins I created earlier in the year), and once dry carefully removed the paper mask.

The green paint has a gloss finish which contrasts with the chalk paint, to remove some of the sheen I did a further quick sand.

The project was super quick and easy to do, all that is required is some decorations.

Rustic Fabric Christmas Decorations

I made some rustic fabric decorations to compliment the wood and hung on nails.
