In this video, I show you how to make two Christmas Trees out of a single pallet. The big one is freestanding and can be placed anywhere in your yard; the second one, from the scraps of the first, has no base so I leaned it against my fence.
This is probably the easiest and most basic version of a pallet Christmas Tree that I've seen. Just drawing lines from the top center to bottom corners produces a contemporary look. Another popular alternative is to cut the boards straight at varying lengths to form a more rustic looking tree.
I use a nice, weathered pallet with rusty nails so I didn't bother painting or staining mine. But there are tons of variations available on Pinterest and Google Images to get your creative juices flowing!
Have a fun and Merry Christmas!
