How to make a PVC pipe Christmas tree
1. Cut the PVC pipes
Cut up varying pieces of PVC pipe to create a unique Christmas tree holiday decoration. I used 1-,1.5-, 2-, and 3-inch pipes and cut them each 2 inches wide.
2. Spray paint
After all your pieces are cut, add a quick coat of spray paint.
3. Paint ornaments
Now it's time to paint your ornaments. I chose four different colors from red to light pink to create an ombre effect.
Before painting, I laid out the pieces to get a general idea of placement and then separated out by color so I knew how many of each size to paint. I also took a picture so it'd be easy to recreate.
4. Sand the wooden board
While your ornaments dry, prepare your background. Make sure to give the wood a good sanding.
5. Stain the wood
Stain the wood that you'll use for the background. You could also paint if you prefer. If staining, remember to wipe off any excess so the color isn't too dark.
6. Place the pipe pieces on the board
Once everything is dry, it's time to lay out your tree. Be sure the different sizes are evenly distributed and use those smaller pieces to fill in where needed.
7. Glue the ornaments to the pipe pieces
For attaching the PVC pieces to the backing, use hot glue to attach the painted ornaments. You can do an ombre design like I did or come up with your own colors and patterns.
8. Glue the pipe pieces to the board
Lastly, use a strong adhesive like Gorilla Glue to attach the PVC pieces in place.
