I had seen some Christmas Trees on Pinterest that were made from reclaimed wood and old pallets and I thought they were cute. I wanted to give it a go but wanted to add my own flare to them. The ones I had seen were just a little too plain Jane for my taste. So, using pallet wood, mod podge, napkins, buttons and some Wildflowers & Pistols Milk Paint I created my version of the Pallet Wood Christmas Tree 🙂
First, you will want to disassemble your pallet. I already had a few pallet boards available from a pallet I had torn apart awhile back. When taking apart pallets I use a sawzall. I just cut right through the nails. I have found this to be the easiest and quickest way. Then you will want to decide how big you want your trees. I decided I wanted my largest tree to stand about 3 ft tall. I cut the back of the tree (or the trunk) to size. Then I just laid out the other boards that would be the ‘branches’ and cut them in descending sizes.
My exact measurements are as follows :
The biggest tree is 34″ Tall and the branches are (from smallest to biggest or top to bottom)
Medium sized tree is 30″ tall and branches are
Smallest sized tree is 22″ Tall and branches are
Once you have everything cut to size just lay it all out and screw each piece into place.
