Ginger Snap Crafts: Scrap Block Christmas Tree + Silhouette Challenge Blog Hop & Giveaway

Scrap Block Christmas Tree + Silhouette Challenge Blog Hop & Giveaway

Good morning! I am so excited to be partnering with my Silhouette Challenge friends & Silhouette to bring you this fun Scrap Block Christmas Tree tutorial, a fun holiday blog hop & an amazing giveaway for a Silhouette CAMEO 3 and a Silhouette Mint for TWO lucky winners. Eek! Let’s get started!

Scrap Block Christmas Tree at GingerSnapCrafts.com
 
I'm not joking when I call this a scrap block tree! ha! I literally went into my garage & came up with enough wood to make this cute little tree. So yep, it was free! You could also use a one piece of 2x2x8 that you can buy at Home Depot or Lowes for under $5. That would be enough to make TWO trees by the way. Pretty inexpensive!
 
 
With a table saw you will cut your wood into the following lengths:

1 = 2 inches
2 = 3 inches
3 = 4 inches
4 = 6 inches
5 = 7 inches
6 = 9 inches
7 = 10 inches

 
After you cut your wood be sure to sand them. Then I painted my blocks with one coat of chalk paint. You could also use acrylic paint. After the paint dried I sanded the edges with a hand sander. Then I applied my vinyl lettering.
 
 
I combined two images (this one & this one) that I found in the Silhouette online store to cut my vinyl out in or just use your favorite fonts. If you don't own a Silhouette you could use paint pens or a stencils to decorate your blocks. It would be super cute to paint these using chalkboard paint. Then let the kiddos take turns "decorating" the tree with chalk!
 
 
These would also make great gift ideas for neighbors & friends. I love adding a little homemade to the holidays. Check out five more easy homemade gift ideas.
 
 
 
 
Now check out some fun holiday projects from my Silhouette Challenge friends. Enjoy!
