Looking for a new idea for your Christmas tree? Grab these things:
- large galvanized beverage tub
- gold spray paint
- FrogTape® Multi-Surface
Use the FrogTape to create stripes or a pattern on the galvanized tub. i just applied mine without exact measurements. Wouldn’t triangles, x’s or chevron be pretty too?
Using a plastic card, burnish the edges of the tape.
I covered the handles with sandwich baggies and taped them in the ‘up’ position. Spray paint the tub. I positioned mine upside down.
As soon as you’ve finished, carefully remove the FrogTape.
Let paint dry. Remove sandwich bags from handles.
Add a tree stand, assemble and decorate the tree.
Since our cat likes to roll around on tree skirts, I love this option.

JOY vinyl covered wood blocks
What you’ll need: a vinyl cutter (or cut vinyl out by hand using scissors)
Using the Silhouette Studio Designer software, create individual designs…I created one for wrapping each block (measure and add up all side of each block for width and the height of block), three individual rectangles for the top of each block. Then the letters J – O – Y (be sure to create a size that will fit nicely on the front of each block).
For wrapping each block, I used the striped vinyl and the patterned vinyl for lettering.
For each design, load vinyl into the machine pattern side facing up.
Send design to cut. Adjust settings for cutting vinyl. Cut.
Peel away vinyl (like stickers) and apply vinyl to blocks, wrapping first
then the top rectangle…
followed by a letter for each block.
So cute. A great gift or holiday decor.
