My husband and I make an unconventional Christmas tree every December. Do you remember our Christmas tree from last year on Bored Panda?
This particular year we also bought a fixer upper house and are in the process of home repairs. 6 months later, after countless trips and thousands of dollars spent to various home improvement stores, we also managed to save a stack of paint samples we would consider using in the process!
We used some old Venetian blinds and some wire to form a tree structure before attaching the paint samples and decorating. Even the star is made from the blinds. Enjoy!
P.S. We still haven’t picked our favorite paint colors yet, but have at least 20 favorites. Hopefully the tree will help us decide!

Here it is finished
We started with so many choices! Actually, we saved a few colors each time we had to visit a store that sold paint
First, we taped them up on the wall to get organized
Then, we cut up the blinds and used the top bar as the trunk
After drilling holes into the bar I added metal wire in a tree form and attached the blind blades
Finished frame before adding the paint samples
We had just enough!
Added some lights and ornaments
