Diy Pallet Christmas Tree Ideas

Alternative Christmas Trees

Finding a tree for those with limited space can be tricky - that is why Pallet Christmas Trees are so popular since they take up minimal space, are budget-friendly and fun to make. You can play with size, scale and color to achieve your desired look. Once you've found the idea that works for you - you can get crafting. It's worth noting that the pallet tree can be reused year after year so it's definitely worth investing some time in the process. If you love the look of raw and rustic designs - look for unfinished boards, scrap wood or panels from an old fence or even doors.
