This time, I had an idea to use the molding to make
Christmas Tree Sculptures.
I used the chop saw to miter the edges and used lots
of wood glue to secure them to a vertical piece of wood on the back.
Here is one with a coat of white primer.
After I glued the largest one together, I realized the last
two layers I used were plain molding and it wasn't jiving
with all the other decorative molding.
I had a bit of nail head trim on hand and applied it to the plain
molding for a little for added interest.
The end result looks much better!
I decided to go monochromatic and paint them white with a brown wash
to bring out all the detail
They are made to lean on a shelf or mantel.
I just love all the detail of the different moldings.
On the smallest one, I didn't stagger the layers but instead cut
them to a triangle shape for a different look.
Thanks for checking them out!
Update December 2016
