Holiday Decorating Using Pvc | Wall Art Home Decor

Christmas time is the best time of the year and my family and I look forward with much anticipation to the home decorating

in celebration of the birth of Jesus. My family business is entrenched in plumbing and it’s been that way since my great-grandfather came to the USA. So, for this Christmas season, we wanted to do something that would be creative and honor everything that our relatives before did for us to be in the position we are in today (holiday home decor). Ladies and gentlemen, we are going to make a Christmas tree made of cut PVC pipes (diy home decorating ideas). You’re going to need a flat piece of board about 2×3, of course, if you have more space feel free to go with a much bigger board. Next, you should sand the board to prep the surface for the pipes that will be attached to it. Next get some painter’s tape to create a tree shape and this is where we “color in the lines” that means the cut pipes will be put within that space. Now it’s time to cut the PVC pies into 1 and 1.5-inch pieces (the pipes should vary in sizes and by that, I mean in diameter).

After you have cut and sanded the edges of the pipes, start putting the pieces in the tree-shaped space on the board, we want to agree on a design BEFORE we glue them to the surface and the kids got involved with this part of the project, they are more creatively inclined that I was. We finally bickered over which design was best and it was time to glue them on to the surface of the board using epoxy, remind the kids to be extra careful when handling the pipes that have the glue on it too, we don’t want any problems. Let the pipes dry it will take about 24 hours; finally, you and your family can start to put into the PVC pipes ornaments, battery powered tea lights or anything really that you want to display for the season. Now it’s time to hang it up on the wall or just lean it against the wall, whichever works. This was a creative option for you guys if you want to move away from the traditional Christmas trees and the like. Please remember to like the video and share with your friends and family!

You can get painter’s tape from any home decor store and if you don’t have painter’s tape you can always draw the shape you want (home decor diy).

Here’s a home decoration tip for this kind of project, make sure the kids are away from this area and try to keep the mess in one spot so clean up won’t be too traumatizing.

I almost cut myself on the edge of a couple cut pipes, so I had to sand them down to a nice flat smooth finish (art home decor).

After you apply the epoxy to the pipe and then to the board let it dry for about 24 hours before you do anything else with it.

Remember to keep the kids away from the epoxy and keep a watchful eye that it doesn’t come into contact with their skin and clothes.

We used some battery powered tea lights and Christmas tree ornaments in the pipes.

You can put whatever you like into the PVC pipes that mean something to you and your family, we choose different color tea lights and different colored ball ornaments as the pipe stuffing.

Looks pretty good for PVC pipes huh? I didn’t run any lights on it, what you see are the tea lights and the glitter from the Christmas ornaments.
