Merry & Bright Dollar Tree Christmas DIY

If you’re looking for a quick and easy Christmas DIY these wood word cut-outs from Dollar Tree are always a good idea! I picked up a couple of the “Merry & Bright” pieces and I’ve been waiting to use them for the perfect project! This Merry & Bright Dollar Tree Christmas DIY could be used as a table centerpiece or just on a shelf! Come get all the details!

Adding ALL the color…

First up, this piece is going to be bright and cheery, so I’m using bright paint colors, including Apple Barrel Apple Red, Apple Barrel Bubble Gum, Anita’s Shamrock green, and Anita’s Light Turquoise.

I decided to paint “Merry” with the Apple Red and then vary the colors on “Bright”.

Next, I want to add this piece to a base so it will stand easily so I’m using a board I have in my stash. Dollar Tree often carries slim sections of wood that would be perfect too!

All about that base…

I’ll add Waverly Antiquing Wax to the board and the back of the “Merry & Bright” sign.

Now I need to attach the wording to my base and the easiest and quickest way to do that is with glue. I’m going to use a little E-6000 and hot glue. I will be adding greenery to the base so I know the glue will be hidden.

Add the “Merry & Bright” and then glue sprigs of greenery onto the base. I’ll touch up those paint spots a little later.

Finally, I’ll add a few of my favorite embellishments. These light and peppermint came from Hobby Lobby.
