Christmas Lawn Decorations Made of Plywood

Get into the holiday spirit for Christmas by crafting festive lawn decorations from leftover plywood. By making your own decorations, you can help save the planet --- and your wallet --- while transforming your home into a winter wonderland.

Materials

You will need the following basic supplies to get started: plywood, a saw, nails and paint. Use items such as pine cones, garland, glitter and lights to make your lawn decorations even more spectacular.

Construction

Depending on your skill level, you may want to make simple cutouts or construct more complex designs such as box style gingerbread houses. Cut out your designs using a table or handsaw and use nails to hold your decorations together. Bring your decorations to life with a little paint and other embellishments.

Considerations

There is nothing more magical than a white Christmas; however, elements such as snow, ice and wind could damage your decorations. Cover the plywood with several coats of shellac to protect against harsh weather.
