I needed to get a little creative with this Month’s Power Tool Challenge and use up some of the wood scrap pieces I have stacked in the garage. Our theme this month was Holiday, so I decided to make Rustic Holiday Decor items for the shop as well as one to send to a fellow Power Tool Challenge Team member. We are making it fun this month by doing Secret Santa and one will be mailed to my contact person. I hope she likes it as much as I do. This post contains some affiliate links.

I stained each wood piece using various colors of stain so they all would not be exactly alike in color. I like to stain the wood pieces before attaching together, it makes it easier to stain in between the pieces.
I used my Kreg Jig to attach the wood pieces together.
The metal snowflakes (<——these are the exact ones I used) I purchased from Amazon and I love them. I love the metal against the rustic wood pieces. The metal snowflakes only had one hole in them, so I had to drill another one to properly secure them to the wood blocks.
Some of the wood boards I framed out using pallet wood. I used my Ryobi Compound Mitre Saw using 45 angle cuts. I stained the frames brown and used Organza from Maison Blanche Paint.
I used a dry brush technique and used the Organza in Silver, Antique Gold, and Bronze. I love how they turned out with just enough shimmer to accent the frame.
I used furniture tacks to secure on the metal snowflakes.
I love how each of these turned out.
