DIY Pallet Wood Christmas Tree Photo & Card Holder
The other day, as random bits of past projects littered the floor and I tried to gather them up and put them away, it struck me. These scrap pieces of pallet wood are almost perfectly graduated in size. I wondered what would happen as I started to arrange them on my garage floor into the meaningful pattern I was sure was there.
I hate to throw things away. I know it borders on hoarding but at times like this I totally feel justified.
How to Make a Pallet Wood Christmas Tree
So there I sat laying out pieces of pallet board like a child laying out blocks feeling quite proud of myself when I realized I could totally make a Christmas tree out of these pieces. I didn’t know what I would do with it once I did but the pieces were practically begging to become O’ Tannebaum and who am I to refuse?
I used my staple gun to attach the pieces but if you don’t have that, wood glue will do. Also, if you don’t have scrap piece stockpiled like I do these are easy cuts for your electric saw.
Maybe you are better parents than me but I must confess that I often take a lot of pictures this time of year that never see the light of day. Even ol’ pics with Santa and that’s a shame.
I decided the top of the tree needed something so I painted a wood slice (from yet another project) with chalkboard paint and painted on a little star. I love how the black works with the weathered wood and little pops of red.
