Christmas Tree DIY Using Rustic Cedar Shims

Home Hardware approached me to feature a Christmas DIY using products from their store. I was inspired by this rustic Christmas tree DIY made out of cedar shims I found on Pinterest (Elizabeth Joan posted it on her website elizabethjoandesigns.com), so I thought I would give it a try with my own personal spin. Little did I know that I would be HOOKED on making cedar shim trees!!! I think I have found my calling. I love how each one turns out differently--each with its own character. There are so many variations and designs to try. The sky is the limit! Let's take a look at the five different ones I created as well as some step by step tutorials on the process.

1- Twin Pines

I made this tall beauty for my collaboration with Home Hardware. I love this one because of its 20 inch height and deep green color -Pleasant Hill by Beauti-tone. I left the trunk natural for added interest and added twinkling fairy lights.
