Christmas Tree Using Old Hardware!

5 Materials
1 Hour
It's Cynthia from Create WIth Cynthia and welcome! Christmas Trees make me happy, Sweet Friends! They bring me joy and glee and pleasure to see. Maybe it’s the leaves, maybe it’s the season, either way, i’m just not ready to say goodbye to Christmas Trees!
I know it’s January, but I still had Christmas Tree projects I was working on. So, today, I thought I’d take a moment and share one with you. This was a super fun and easy diy that you could do too.
Now when I first bought this Christmas Tree it sat on my front porch without any jewels. I mean, old hardware. I didn’t have a plan for it and then. as January rolled around and I was cleaning out my tool box, I realized I had alot of extra hardware that needed a home.

Sweet Friends, old hardware is like jewelry to me.

And don’t you think the old hardware dressed up this tree beautifully?
Well, let me give you some directions on how to recreate this beauty.

In case you love old hardware like I do.
  • Wood Tree by Darice 
  • Paint or Stain and Sealer
  • Paint Brushes
  • Old hardware with screws
  • Drill or screwdriver
  • Glue Gun and Glue Sticks
Step one: Gather your Wood Tree and Hardware.
Step two: Paint your Wood Tree. I used Debi’s Design Diary DIY Paint in the color Tarnished Pearl and then sealed the tree with DIY Paint, Big Top. You can purchase these paint products at
Step three: Determine where you will place your hardware. 
Step four: Use a pen to mark the spots where you will drill holes.
Step five: Drill holes.
Step six: Add hardware. If needed us a Glue Gun to add the hardware onto the tree instead of using the drill or screwdriver.
Step seven: Enjoy your Reclaimed Hardware Christmas Tree.
