Jute Wrapped Tree


This is one of those fun little projects that was inspired by a relatively similar project over here but I had a hankering for a Jute Christmas Tree and I had an extra yard stick laying around, so I thought I could put the two together and make a really cute Jute Wrapped Christmas Tree (using a yard stick as the base).  This was simple to do and I love how it turned out.

First you will cut your yardstick into three sections.  I cut (2) 12" lengths and (1) 8" length.  Using wood glue and clamps I glued the wood lengths together into a triangle.  (I only have 2 clamps so I had to get a little creative and used a couple of chip clips on the third corner hahaha!  Just keeping it real people :)

After the glue had dried, wrap your jute generously around your triangle.  You can use a little hot glue occasionally to secure the jute in place if desired especially at the beginning and end.

Use wood glue to secure the scrap block of wood as a base to the bottom of the jute wrapped tree.

Embellish with a bow made out of red burlap if desired!
