Use stain to create the look of pallets on regular wood! These stained Christmas trees are fun outdoor holiday decorations.
I’m a big fan of pallet art, but I’m not a big fan of taking apart a pallet and putting it back together in the shape I want it in. Sometimes I just want it to be easier, don’t you? That’s why I’m loving my new faux pallet Christmas trees! I can’t wait to put them in the yard to decorate this December.
While my husband was cutting, I got to work staining the “ornaments” and stars that were going to go on the trees. This pack of assorted wooden discs and the stars are from Joann’s. I gave each a single light coat of Golden Honey Color Stain.
Once the Chocolate stain was dry, I taped off strips of “garland” using Painter’s tape. Then I applied a light coat of Forest Color Stain. Once that was dry, I applied a second light coat of the Forest to darken the color.
Once the Forest stain was dry, I removed the Painter’s tape from the garland and reused it to tape off the outside edges of the garland and applied a single light coat of Brick Color Stain.
Once all of the stain was dry, I used a good epoxy to adhere the ornaments and stars to the trees.
It turned out to be such fun and rustic group of little trees! And I’m a big fan of traditional Christmas colors but you could easily mix it up with some of the other Color Stains (Coral and Turquoise would look amazing!). The pallet look pairs great with my new tobacco stick star, don’t you think?
