About this time each year I get out this holiday planter I made from inexpensive 1″ x 6″ wood and stained using Minwax® Water-Based Stains. Some years we use it for holiday cards, while others might find it filled with evergreen bows, red ribbons, or even a string of lights. Its easy to make, as you can customize the size to wherever you might place it, then assemble it with brass screws.
I’m no artist, but even for me drawing the outlines for the pine trees across the back was fun. As an alternative to the cutout trees, you can glue onto the back board either festive wrapping paper, a collage of last year’s cards, or holiday self-adhesive stickers.
Hope you give it a try!
Until next time,
Thanks for stopping by!
