Whimsical Wooden Pallet Tree
In a few simple steps, create a piece of holiday art to enjoy for years to come.
- pallet or scraps of pallet wood
- spray paint: red, turquoise and white
- nails and hammer or screws and a drill
Cut Wood to Shape
Cut eight pieces of pallet wood, each one descending in size. You will need enough for seven layers plus one more piece for the trunk.
Spray-Paint Alternate Strips
Separate your layers and arrange them into two piles, selecting every other layer for each pile. Lay out the wood in each pile and spray-paint in two steps. First spray-paint one pile of wood turquoise, then the other red (the trunk should also be red).
Using a hammer and nails or drill with screwdriver, assemble the tree. Connect each layer to the piece of wood below it by hammering a nail or screwing a screw down at an angle.
Add Bird Stencil
Find a dove stencil online by searching Google for “dove template.” Print and cut out a template. Place on top of your bottom board and spray carefully with white paint. Peel back the template to reveal the doves.
