(If you have to order them online, Dollar Tree has smaller quantities available for the truck.)

Unless you are steady-handed and can paint a perfect circle, here’s a trick I used.

  • Cut a circle the same size as the truck wheel. Cut the circle in half and use it as a mask to paint the top of the wheel. I used removable vinyl to cut my circle.

  • Cut a piece of Vinyl Transfer Tape* to fit over the vinyl words.  Gently rub over the transfer paper using the squeegee tool.  Lift the transfer tape to remove the vinyl from the white liner.

  • Using the vinyl transfer tape, line up the words onto the side of the truck.   
  • Gently rub over the vinyl transfer tape using the squeegee tool to make sure all the image has transferred.  
  • Remove the transfer tape.

  • I used Wood Glue* to glue the truck.  I needed glue that would give me enough time to line up the box and still be sturdy enough to hold the weight.
  • Allow time for the glue to dry before picking up the finished truck.

  • Decorate the body of the truck using a craft pine stem as garland. 
  • Glue small bows and beads onto the garland.

  • When picking out the small rectangle box to use as the bed of the truck, I thought the star was perfect.
  • Fill the bed of the truck with small Christmas Trees.

Kringle’s Christmas Tree Lot

You’ll need several mini trees to make a Christmas Tree Lot.

When I ordered the little trees at IKEA, I really hoped the trees would fit. 

I couldn’t be happier with the size.
