DIY Upcycled Pallet Christmas Tree

December 22, 2015

Are you still trimming up? We finished yesterday – the final touched an upcycled pallet Christmas tree for the front porch. Our porch is often neglected, and not very welcoming. I was determined to give it a little personality for the Christmas season. We have an old pallet waiting to be transformed, so this is the ideal opportunity.

DIY Upcycled Pallet Christmas Tree

RECOMMENDED SUPPLIES:

Start by sanding then painting it white with Rustoleum chalk paint. Once dry sand to bring back some of the wood.

Next have a consultation period as to whether to have the tree white or green, our consensus decided on a white tree. Create a tree shape out of newspaper to act as a mask.

Christmas Tree Paper Mask

Using temporary craft spray glue place the paper tree onto the pallet. Spray painted the surround with green paint (left over from the round cake tins I created earlier in the year), and once dry carefully removed the paper mask.

The green paint I used has a gloss finish which contrasts with the chalk paint, to remove some of the sheen I did a further quick sand.

The project was super quick and easy to do, all that is required is some decorations.

Rustic Fabric Christmas Decorations

I made some rustic fabric decorations to compliment the wood and hung on nails. If you would love to see how the decorations are made there is a tutorial here.
