Boyle 915 x 100 x 1.5mm Balsa Wood Sheet
Small and simple D.I.Y. Christmas crafts can add warmth and atmosphere to the home this holiday season. Try these Scandinavian-inspired mini balsa wood trees, perfect for placing on shelves or the Christmas table, to add a touch of cheer.
Mark out two equal-sized triangles of desired height and 100mm width on balsa wood. Carefully cut out the triangles on the cutting mat, using a craft knife.
To create neat stripes, apply strips of painter’s tape, paint, allow to dry and then remove tape.
On both triangles, draw a vertical line from the tip of the triangle down the centre to the base, and mark the halfway point on each line. On one triangle, carefully cut a 1mm wide vertical line from the top to the halfway point. On the other triangle, cut a 1mm wide vertical line from the base up to the halfway point.
To finish, cross the triangles and gently slot them together.
Asbestos, lead-based paints and copper chromium arsenic (CCA) treated timber are health hazards you need to look out for when renovating older homes. These substances can easily be disturbed when renovating and exposure to them can cause a range of life-threatening diseases and conditions including cancer. For information on the dangers of asbestos, lead-based paint and CCA treated timber and tips for dealing with these materials contact your local council's Environmental Health Officer or visit our Health & Safety page.
