I used to love going to tree farms to cut a tree and really miss doing that so I decided to recreate one as part of my decorations. This is really simple and you can personalize it by using stuff you have on hand. I bought the red truck at Hobby Lobby and use it year round by putting stuff in the trunk that fits the holiday or time of year.
The first thing I did was spray paint some small cans. Next I mixed up some plaster and poured it into the can and then stuck a dowel in the center and let it dry.
Put a small eyelet in the top of each pole. You will use this to attach your lights and candy canes.
I used a small piece of canvas to make my sign and a stencil to do the lettering. Fold over each end and glue or stitch. This forms a pocket to slide over the dowel.
I used small tags that I got at Walmart in the office supply section. I priced the trees according to size.
I used wire cutters to remove pieces from a floral pick to make wreaths. Twist the ends together and then finish it off with a bow. I added a small piece of wire to attach it to the fence.
I added a chalkboard that I purchased at Hobby Lobby.
I wrapped garland (from the floral pick) around each pole. I am going to add snow to mine as soon as I get to town.
