This year for Christmas, I'm all about cut out trees. I am loving them. First, they are super easy to make. Second, super cheap. Third, simple. All my requirements for a great project :) I cranked these out in under an hour.

Supplies:
Christmas Tree Cut Outs (I used the Cricut Explore Air 2 to cut mine)
Scrap wood (at least 3/4" wide to stand freely)
Jigsaw
Sweater
Paint/stain

Step 1: Cut out the trees into three different sizes. My largest one is about 10" wide, the second one is 7" and the third 5".

 Step 2: Trace out the trees on the wood.

 Step 3: Start to cut out the wood with the jigsaw. I usually cut from the right side first, getting all the cuts done on the right.

 Step 4: Then I flip the wood over, and using the cut part as a template, I line up the tree on the wood again. I then trace it on this side, and finish up the cutting going from the right once again.

 Step 5: Sand down the trees if needed.

 Step 6: On the larger tree, stain the edges. I used DecoArt's Walnut Gel Stain. On the smaller trees, I stained the face of the trees, and then painted the edges white.

 Step 7: Use the tree template again and trace it onto the sweater. I used a marker to trace it on the back side.

 Step 8: Cut it out carefully. To secure the sweater onto the wood, place a good layer of decoupage onto the wood, and then line up the sweater and move it into place. You may have to go back through when everything is dry to trim the sweater a bit since it may stretch out.

 These have been floating around my house. I can't decide where they look better! I think they may have found a home on my front room mantel. We'll see if they stay or find another home :)
