DIY Shutter Christmas Tree

I’m so glad to be back for another week on This Silly Girls Life!! I love this time of year! The pretty lights, the smells, family, great food, Christmas trees, and lots of laughter. Love the feeling of this season! So I thought I would share with you a little something I whipped up…A Shutter Tree!

I had this one lonely shutter laying in the garage for quite awhile. I’ve seen lots of great shutter ideas. But I couldn’t make up my mind. As always. LOL Then as I am sitting in my “Imagination Station” aka the garage, and it hit me! I had some extra wire garland laying around and thought…ummm Why NOT!

I used nails on this project. 
-2 on each side of the bottom
-2 on each side in the middle
-1 in the top center!

I then just wrapped the wire garland around each nail, so it would stay in place.

I then found a piece of bead board in my scraps bin. And what do you know, it fit perfect! Painted a little festive phrase and VIOLA!
