How to build a Christmas tree with a wood pallet

This is the perfect tree: it is made of recycled wood, does not lose its needles, is affordable, and eternal (well, almost).
1

Set the pallet on the floor in a safe location

2

Draw the line

Draw the lines with a lead pencil and a board or with a chalk line. Start the lines in the middle of the top vertical board and go down to the two corners.
3

Cut the pallet along the lines with the jigsaw

4

Turn the pallet over, and cut the other horizontal boards

5

Remove the nails from the longest board with a hammer

6

Nail the board you just removed to the bottom of the middle vertical board

7

Sand the tree to avoid slivers, and for a more attractive finish

8

Decorate

  • 8.1 - Add white strings of lights
  • 8.2 - Install finish nails to hang your favourite Holiday decorations.

Pro tip

If you have children or animals, attach the tree to the wall or put a weight on its base to keep it stable.
