DIY Wooden Christmas Trees

I have been itching to do a DIY project and with Christmas around the corner, my mind is consumed with the holidays! So I used some scrap wood pieces from my DIY Barn Door and created a fun and easy DIY tutorial for you to try!

Supplies
  • Wood Pieces for Tree: 1 1/2″ W X 1/2″ thick (lengths vary)
  • Wood Piece for base
  • Miter Saw
  • Wood Glue
  • Paint or stain (optional)
1- Cut Wood pieces

I recommend cutting each piece to be 2 inches difference in length. For example, below I cut my pieces into 6 in, 4 in, 2 in, and the final peek of the tree. Make sure your miter saw is set at a 45 degree angle.

2- Glue tree pieces together

Next, take your Elmers wood glue and glue each piece together. Make sure to have a wet paper towel close by to clean up any leakage from the glue. Let dry for about 1 hour

3- Cut your truck and stand

I used a 2 inch trunk for my taller tree and a 1 1/2 inch trunk for my shorter tree. I then cut about a 4″ x 4″ stand for my taller tree and a 3″ x 3″ stand for my shorter tree.

The stands can be really any size you like. They just have to be large enough to hold the tree up.

4- Glue Trunk and stand together

Use your wood glue to secure the truck and stand together. Let dry for about 1 hour.
