I LOVE This Easy Red Truck DIY Christmas Craft Project

This easy Red Truck DIY Christmas Craft Project is my favorite table or countertop Christmas décor. The red truck & trees are super cute!

Red Truck DIY Christmas Craft Project

Today, I have a quick and easy Red Truck DIY Christmas Craft Project that I just love and hope you do too!!

I found my red truck ornaments 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.

Amazon has a huge selection of great red truck Christmas ornaments to pick from. And Amazon has a cute unfinished craft truck you can paint red or any other color you like.

Steps to Make this Easy Red Truck Christmas Craft Project

Step One

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.

Step Two

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.

Step Three

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.

Step Four

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.
