Pallet Christmas Tree tutorial

Hello lovelies!
I hope you all are enjoying your Sunday. I have spent the weekend decorating my Christmas tree and dining room including painting the floor! So without further ado I wanted to share with you my wooden pallet Christmas Tree...

We recently had our hot water tank replaced and the plumbers left behind a small wooden pallet, perfect to make an alternative Christmas tree with. I painted and glittered my wooden pallet Christmas Tree in peach, mint and gold to match this years colour palette. I mixed water with the paint to give it a shabby feel. I used my pretty and bird handmade thumbtacks as the hooks, and am using my new alternative tree to hang my favorite vintage Christmas tree decorations from. Well until they are replaced with my advent matchboxes... one day at a time!

How-to step by step

  • Pallet Christmas tree diagram

    Step 1

    Start by carefully disassembling your wooden pallet. Cut wooden pallet strips to size. Lightly sand raw edges. Using wooden nails attach each wooden pallet plank to the main strutt. I used two nails per plank to secure the planks in place.

    Step 2

    Mix the white primer paint with a little water and mix well. Paint the entire tree in the watered down paint.

    Step 3

    Mix the acrylic colour of your choice with water and mix well. Paint the pallet strips with the watered down paint, leave to dry. Paint glitter glue on to the painted pallet strips and leave to dry. Mark out your pin placements and push decorative pins into the planks of wood. Screw a picture frame hook on the back and hang on the wall. Hang with decorations or advent matchboxes.
