DIY Pallet Christmas Tree

I can’t believe Christmas is so soon! We love to decorate for Christmas, before Thanksgiving. WeΒ don’t ignore Thanksgiving, it’s just not Thanksgiving to us without a Christmas Tree. Plus, it takes time and the decorations are so pretty, why not put them out early! This non-traditional DIY Pallet Christmas Tree might just be my favorite Christmas decoration EVER! ***Tool giveaway at the bottom of this post :)***

DIY-Pallet-Christmas-Tree

This is a VERY easy DIY and it’s easy to make it your own! I used a mix of materials for the “pallets”, tin sheets, molding, pine boards and our fav – blue stained pine!

    I LOVE you girls! I was inspired to start 6 pieces of furniture at once! I’m almost finished with the Pottery Barn style coffee table with matching end tables.

    Our twin daughters who are 7 are truly miracles. Megan was diagnosed during my pregnancy with a dilated ventricle in her brain and the Dr’s said she would never walk and her speech would be limited. A year after her birth her CT scan came back with a normal result that showed all the water and blood in her brain resolved. I would LOVE to build your platform bed for them as a new “big girl” room makeover. I have always loved to do woodworking and to have the proper tools again to do this would be a HUGE blessing!

  • Ashley Scott

    My grandparents 50th wedding anniversary is coming up next June. I would love to be able to use the tools above to create a customized gift!

  • I love building! You’re creating something new from pieces, creating something out of nothing. There’s nothing so real, so alive, then making something with wood. I love what I’ve made so far, but having tools would make it so much better to make more of what I love!

  • Melissa Heading

    The Ryobi circular saw is on my Christmas list this year. I always have Home Depot cut my wood so I’m hoping to start experimenting with cutting my own plywood.

  • Staci torgerson

    My hubby and I finished a chicken coop that took us most of the summer. We only had a skilled saw, reciprocating saw and drill. It turned out great but with new tools the tree house we’ve promised our daughters this winter would go much more quickly and painlessly.
