Sometimes it takes a little trial and error to get a project just right. The pegboard tree was one of those. Every time it was shown to another member of our team, they would offer a simply superb suggestion for making the project even more grand! From the twinkling lights to the elegant artwork on the back, this project concept was definitely a team effort! One of the best finishing touches was the frame. It truly took the whole look up a few notches. See?
To frame your own tree: Use wood glue and #18 x 1 1/4-inch brads to attach a 1×4 board and 1×3 board together with one edge flush creating a 1-inch overhang. Cut to fit around the perimeter of your tree, and attached to the 1×2 board backing frame using glue and #18 x 1 1/4-inch brads.
