Quick & Easy Red Truck DIY Christmas Centerpiece Idea

This is an incredibly quick and easy Red Truck DIY, I think you’ll love!

Today, I have a Red Truck DIY Christmas Centerpiece idea that I just love and hope you do too!! Last week, I found these cute 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.

I’m sorry to say, that little Red Truck seems to be sold out on Target’s site right now. But Amazon has a super cute unfinished craft truck you can paint red. Or you can find other little red trucks at Target, Amazon, Walmart, Hobby Lobby, etc.

Even though you may not be able to find these exact items, don’t worry. Use this DIY to spark your own creativity and put your own spin on this project. As always, I’d love to see what you come up with. So post a picture on Facebook or Instagram and be sure to tag Abbotts At Home, so I can see it!

Steps to Make this DIY Christmas Centerpiece Idea

  1. Use the foam brush to apply a thick even layer of white paint to the wood slice. I like to keep it about 1/2″ from the edges to leave a pretty edge.Quick & Easy Red Truck DIY Christmas Centerpiece Idea.

  2. After that dries, apply Mod Podge to the white paint and sprinkle with the snowflake confetti. Make sure the confetti is broken up before sprinkling or it will stick in clumps.Quick & Easy Red Truck DIY Christmas Centerpiece Idea.

  3. While that dries, lightly wrap embroidery floss around some of your bottle brush trees.Quick & Easy Red Truck DIY Christmas Centerpiece Idea. Christmas or Holiday table centerpiece or Vignette. #RedTruck #RedTruckDecor #ChristmasDIY #ChristmasCenterpiece
  4. Pick an arrangement for the trees and truck that you like, then glue in place with the Mod Podge. If you want to use the truck again later, then skip the glue on that. :)Quick & Easy Red Truck DIY Christmas Centerpiece Idea.
