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!
