This month our challenge was to take a cutting board and turn it into something different. I found this beautiful, thick cutting board this past summer at the dump store and it has been patiently waiting for its month to shine.For my cutting board project, I wanted to keep my Scandinavian Christmas theme going and make some more decorations. (see previous projects here and here)The free cutting board served as the perfect base for the piece.
To raise it up, each corner got a cork glued onto it (on the bottom of the board).
Split Birch branches, attached to the edges, trimmed out the board beautifully and added a rustic touch. To make the little Scandinavian forest, three holes were drilled where the twigs and paper trees would go. Trees were made from some of my favourite wrapping paper. It is simple and pretty and classic.

Doesn’t that cutting board make the best stage for my new little forest? I love it!! I am completely in love with all of the neutrals and natural green elements from nature. They just make my heart smile ♥
I would love to know what you have been using to decorate this holiday season that makes you happy. Is it a certain colour or theme or style? Share with us what makes your heart full!
Pin for later…
