Red Truck DIY Christmas Craft Project
Today, I have a quick and easy Red Truck Christmas decoration that I just love and hope you do too!!
I found my red truck ornament and bottle brush trees at Target. Target just knows what people like, right? It’s like they’re reading our minds. I buy most of my ornaments and Christmas supplies there.
But, I’ve seen similar Red Truck ornaments at Dollar Tree and WalMart that would look super cute too. And, Amazon has a huge selection of great red truck Christmas ornaments to pick from.

What you Need
- Large Wood Slice, about 12″
- White Acrylic Paint
- Foam Brush for paint
- Mod Podge
- Multicolor Embroidery Floss
- Bottle Brush Christmas Trees, various sizes. Pick a scale that works with the truck you find.
- Snowflake Confetti or Sparkly Snow Glitter
- A Red Truck Ornament
How to Make Red Truck Christmas Decorations
Use the foam brush to apply a thick even layer of white paint to one side of the wood slice. I like to keep it about 1/2″ from the edges to leave a pretty edge.
This is supposed to look like snow, so you don’t need to make the edges perfect.
After that dries, apply Mod Podge to the white paint and quickly sprinkle it with the snowflake confetti. Make sure the confetti is broken up before sprinkling or it will stick in clumps.
This confetti adds a bit of fun sparkle to this easy Red Truck DIY Christmas decor idea.
While that layer of Mod Podge and confetti dries, lightly wrap embroidery floss around some of your bottle brush trees. I like to use multicolor embroidery floss for more colorful trees.
Pick an arrangement for the bottle brush Christmas trees and your Red Truck Christmas Ornament, then glue in place with the Mod Podge or a glue gun.
If you want to use that Red Truck or the bottle brush trees again later, use hot glue. It’s easier to remove.
That’s it, guys! How stinkin’ quick and easy was that DIY Red Truck Christmas Decoration, right?!
Pop it on a table or counter top for a little extra Christmas cheer in any room.
