Supplies you’ll need to create your own set of Wooden Christmas Trees:
- Wooden Christmas Trees Set
- Polka Dot Stencil
- No Paint Gel Stain in Walnut
- Fluff Dixie Belle Chalk Paint
- Dixie Belle Clear Wax
- Painter’s Tape
Let’s start by taking a closer look at the Wooden Christmas Trees set that I used. These are from my trusted “Wood Guys” at Twin Knobs Woodworks and can be purchased in their shop HERE.
Idea #1: Stain & Stencil
Begin by staining all sides of the tree with No Pain Gel Stain in the color Walnut. I apply this product with a clean cloth.
Once the stain is dry, you can add your stencil. I used a Polka Dot pattern and applied Dixie Belle Chalk Paint in the Color fluff using a makeup sponge. Be sure to pounce the color onto your stencil in thin, even layers until you reach your desired coverage.
Idea #2: Simply Paint
This is an easy one y’all. Simply paint all sides of the tree in your color of choice! I used the color Fluff for mine.
Idea #3: Distress
This final idea is super easy and will create a pretty distressed Vintage Christmas look!
You’ll want to begin with your tree stained and dry. Then add Dixie Belle Wax to the edges and anywhere else on the surface where you’d like to see distressing.
Once your wax is applied, add a coat of paint. I used the color Fluff and let dry. Once your paint is dry, use painter’s tape to lift the color from the areas where you applied the wax.
These are really just a few simple ideas for these wooden tree blanks. You could use glitter, 3D embellishments like stars or ornaments or add some faux snow to the edges. The possibilities are endless!!

I love these, Tammy! They’re so cute and rustic. And they’re not green or red 👍🏻
LOL, that is so true, Wendy. I am really enjoying the neutral look of this as well. Thank you!
Neutral Christmas trees! Love them so much. ❤️ They’re adorable.
Thank you so much! I am really digging the neutral look as well.<3 I may need to make some more for me. LOL
There are gorgeous! I was hoping for more info about the polka dot stencil? May it be purchased somewhere?
Thank you so much, they turned out even better than I hoped. 🙂 So the polka dot stencil was one I had purchased from Hoppy Lobby a few years back it came in a set of 2, small dots and a bit larger dot. I think snowflakes would look amazing on it as well. I hope that helps a bit, if you have any other questions I am happy to help.
