Let me share how I made mine…

MATERIALS NEEDED: {AFFILIATE LINKS INCLUDED FOR YOUR CONVENIENCE}

  • one 1˝ x 8˝ x 12´ Common Board
  • one 1˝ x 6˝ x 8´ Common Board
  • one 1˝ x 4˝ x 6´ Common Board
  • 1 1/4″ brad nails for nailer
  • sanding block
  • Antique White stain
  • nails
  • wire
  • spacers (I used laminate flooring spacers)
  • silver bulbs
  • gold bulbs
  • small silver bulbs
  • small gold bulbs
  • gold snowflake

ADDITIONAL TOOLS:

First step is cutting down your boards.

  • Measure and cut three 48″ long sections from the 1˝ x 8˝ x 12´ Common Board
  • Measure and cut three 48″ long sections from the 1˝ x 6˝ x 8´ Common Board

Lay your boards down alternating… 8″ wide… 6″ wide… 8″ wide… 6″ wide… 8″ wide placing a spacer between the boards.

Place your 30″ boards across the boards.  I used my nailer to attach the boards, but you could use wood screws also.

Your building is done!!!  Super easy right!  Now the creative fun begins.

Decorating your Holiday Ornament Display

I stained my wood with an Antique White stain.  I gives it almost a white washed look… I wanted something soft that would really make my gold and silver ornaments pop.

I love this stain because it dries in 1 hour!  Then I started my tree layout.  I marked the center of my tree in the center of the middle board.  Then I decided how far down I wanted the tree to go and how wide.

I spaced my rows 5.25″ inches a part.  I marked each side at those spots so I knew where to hammer in the nails.

When I laid out the ornament on the board until I got the look I wanted.

I took the wire and slid the top row ornament on the wire.  I wrapped the right side around the right nail, then pulled the wire tight, wrapped it around the left nail a few times and then trimmed the wire with a wire cutter.

I repeated the pattern until I worked my way down the tree.  At the top of my tree I attached a snowflake ornament with a hammer and nail.

I wrapped some tiny LED battery powered lights around them so they can glow during the night too.

  1. I just LOVE this! My husband has built me a few photo boards that look similar and I love how you added the ornament tree. I am definitely showing this to him it can be his next DIY project 🙂

  2. I love your version of this project! Attaching the ornaments to wire and spacing them out a bit gives your tree a great look. You are really going to enjoy this between now and Christmas and it goes perfectly with your new tree that you shared the other day.
