My husband and I are renovating a cabin and we saved all the cracked and worn porcelain cabinet pulls after demo-ing the kitchen. I couldn’t dare throw them away, so when I saw a similar idea using door handles and pine garland, I knew what I wanted to make!
Materials for the Cabinet Pull Christmas Trees:
- Cabinet pulls with center screw hole. Try to use cabinet pulls that are flatish on the bottom. The finished Christmas trees will tip and sway a little bit like weeble wobbles, but it will make them even cuter.
- Decorative Christmas trees (These are Lemax Snowy Pines I purchased at Michael’s, but any type of hobby or craft tree that looks good with the pulls will work.)
Step 1: Snip off the base if your tree is attached to one.
Step 2: Fill the screw hole with E6000. If the E6000 bubbles up, use a toothpick to pop the bubble and fill the entire cavity all the way to the top.
Step 3: Hold the tree in position for 5-10 minutes until the E6000 sets and the Christmas tree will stand up straight on it’s own. Let the E6000 dry overnight before handling them.
I can’t wait to put these little Christmas trees on the mantle of our cabin!
