The Christmas Season is upon us! Every year Avry and I come up with a homemade craft that we give to many of our beloved friends and family. Usually, we find an idea almost a year in advance and starting collecting items that we will need for our special Christmas crafts. This year we were a little off and had several ideas floating around, We had found and purchased a few things but didn’t have a solid idea until about a month ago as to what we would be creating for our friends this year. We finally came up with this Rustic Wood Trimmed Plaid and Buffalo Check Holiday Decor Boards. I will tell you I think this was one of my all-time favorite Christmas gift projects! I absolutely love how they turned out and they were fairly simple and quick to create.
To create your own Rustic Wood Trimmed Plaid and Buffalo Check Holiday Decor Boards you will need:
Thin wood or boards about 1/4″ thick (cut into 12″ by 12″ squares)
lathing strips (2 strips cut a 12″ and 2 strips cut at 10″)
unfinished wood ornaments
Buffalo check or plaid 12″ by 12″ scrapbook paper
Paint (your choice in colors)
Using your table saw or have the home improvement store cut your thin wood into 12″ by 12 ” squares. Then use your chop saw to cut the lathing strips. You will need to 2 strips cut at 12″ and 2 more strips cut at 10″ for a total of 4 lathing strips.
Mod Podge a 12″ by 12″ sheet of scrapbook paper onto your 12″ by 12″ square board and allow to dry.
While your Mod podged board is drying paint unfinished wood ornaments desired color.
Hot glue pre-cut lathing strips around the edges of your board to create a frame.
After your painted wood ornament is completely dry hot glue ornament into the center of your board.
