Welcome to Day 2 of our 12 Days of Christmas Series!
I LOVE how this next project turned out. I am always looking for fun and different ways to dress up the dining table at Christmas time. Check out my latest DIY Christmas Centerpiece!
I love it! Really this can be used anywhere. I set it on my entryway table and loved how it looked there too! This is a really simple and inexpensive project!
1 – 1x4x4
1 – 1x2x10
7 cup hooks
1.25” finish or brad nails
1 – 1×4 at 41”
2 – 1×2 at 40”
2 – 1×2 at 12”
The first thing you want to do after making your cuts is to attach one 12” piece to one 40” piece using wood glue and nails.
I used my Ryobi AirStrike brad nailer to assemble the entire thing. If this baby isn’t in your garage or on your list, get it there now. You will thank me… I promise.
Attach the other 12” piece the same way.
Now, run a line of wood glue down the center of the 1×4 piece.
Line the rectangle up on this piece and attach it using the brad nailer or finish nails.
At this point, your project should look a bit like this.
Before attaching the other 40” piece, we are going to attach the cup hooks. I found my silver ones at Target. I spaced mine evenly across and used a small drill bit to pre-drill where each hook will be.
You can screw in your cup hooks by hand, or use this awesome bit to save you a ton of time! I LOVE this thing. I don’t use it on every build, but it’s the perfect attachment for certain projects like this one. Plus it’s like 5 bucks at Home Depot. Done.
After attaching all of the cup hooks, attach this piece to the other 12” pieces to create a rectangle.
And you are done! You can finish your centerpiece however you want. I chose to stain mine using Varathane wood stain in Early American. After it dried, I used a sander to distress the edges a bit.
I used some twine to hang some ornaments and I was done!
Thanks so much for stopping by guys!
