Pallet Christmas Trees

I know the holidays are long over and most Christmas trees are out by the curb by now, but as many do, I got wrapped up in the season and was delinquent in posting this before 2014 ended.  In November, I experimented with making these rustic pallet Christmas trees, which were sold at local craft shows and the store in Kinzer, PA during the holidays.

A jig saw was used to cut the pallets, leaving boards on either side of the widest part of the tree to serve as a natural stand. Once cut, the trees were painted lightly with a dry brush. Small ornaments and a snowflake star completed the decorations. Each ornament dangles from a nail and can be interchangeable.

Trees range from 18″ to 36″ tall and can be used indoors or outdoors. Maybe next year I’ll experiment with adding lights to these. But right now, I’m dreaming of spring, when I can start building more pallet chairs!

Pallet Christmas Trees (small, medium and large): $15-$30
