Pallet Wood Christmas Trees

543K Views
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. 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.

Once I had all the boards cut to the size I liked I screwed each board to the 'trunk' using one and a quarter inch screws.

Then I grabbed my mod podge and napkins and applied them to a couple of the boards. I also dry brushed the remaining boards with Wildflowers & Pistols Milk Paint using Nancy and Lucile.

Once I was done with that I used super glue to attach the buttons as 'ornaments' and to place the star to the top of the tree. You can purchase our milk paint here ----> http://wildflowersandpistols.com/collections/milk-paint

    They no longer carry these stars at our local Hobby Lobby Ended up having to cut out my own. Still wish I could purchase them. So great looking. Love these trees.
