So excited to share with you my Rolling pin Christmas tree because it is such a great DIY to try. Rolling pins are fairly easy to find at most thrift stores, and they are very inexpensive. You can even find dollar tree rolling pins that would be perfect for this Christmas craft. You will love how this DIY Rolling Pin Christmas tree is a beauty, yet so easy to put together.
I’ll share with you how I put this together and what supplies I used.
- 20 x 15 Wood Board
- Crackle Paint
- Waverly White Chalk Paint and Waverly Truffle
- Mod Podge
- 5 Dollar Tree Rolling Pins
- Embellishments -Snowflake Dollar Tree Ornament-Decorative molding
Steps to make this adorable piece
First step is to prepare your board. Now if you love it unpainted you can definitely leave it like that. I personally love the look of chippy paint. I achieved that by using Crackle Medium. I wanted big cracks so I put a generous amount of crackle on my board, you paint it on just like paint. Wait for it to dry completely, then apply your white paint. Once the paint starts to dry you get this great effect.
While your board is drying you can work on cutting out the fabric for your rolling pins. Since I was making this into a Christmas tree I found fabric to match the theme. Walmart has a great selection of fabric for a reasonable price. I measured the rolling pins and then cut out the fabric. The best way to adhere the fabric to the rolling pins is to use mod podge. Apply a thin coat of mod podge, then gently lay your fabric around it making sure to smooth out the fabric. Once dry apply another coat to seal the fabric to the rolling-pin.
Putting the DIY Dollar Tree Rolling Pins Christmas Tree together
Now figuring out how to attach the rolling pins was somewhat of a challenge. Originally I thought I would just hot glue them, but they are obviously too heavy. So off to Lowe’s we went! After Bill, myself, and my daughter walked around searching endlessly, my daughter finally found what we needed. These robe hooks appeared to be exactly what we needed.
We got them home and thought they would work. well, attaching them became another challenge. Thankfully, Bill came up with a solution. We attached them directly to the edge of the board. This worked out so well because now I can change out my pins as I like for other holidays.
We are almost done
Now, to make it look like a Christmas tree I added the trunk, which was another flea market find. For the topper of this adorable Christmas tree, I used a wood round which I painted using Waverly truffle paint. I applied the paint using a baby wipe, this makes it look like a stain. Adding the burlap Dollar Tree snowflake made this so beautiful. If you would like you can watch how I made this Christmas tree live here.
