Cliff and I are equally obsessed with paint chips and sparkly holiday lights so it’s no surprise that we found a way to combine the two into our very first DIY style Christmas Tree. Or what we call the Giant Lite Brite Paint Chip Christmas Tree. How did we make it? With pegboard, Behr paint, 600 LED lights (from Home Depot) and some crazy Currie creativity of course!
If this sounds/looks absurd (you must be new here) please read up on Paint Chip Gate, Paint Chip Costumes and Paint Chip Address Cards; then come back and enjoy our wacky world of gigantic paint chips. For those that wouldn’t expect any less from us check out some more photos of this 8 foot beauty!
Sure we spent about 180 bucks on project materials (mostly on LEDs) and 2 evenings putting it all together but that’s a small price to pay for a really “unique” 8 foot tall Christmas tree that will be used for many holiday seasons to come. Check out our Giant Lite Brite Paint Chip assembly time-lapse video!
This behemoth paint chip marks our 4th paint chip craft which is enough to start a Hand MAKE My day Paint Chip category (look to your right)! Love it or hate it you know you’ll be back for more ;)
