It’s that time of the year again when everything is cold and all of it smells just like Christmas. One the most important addition to the Christmas spirit is a beautifully ornamented Christmas tree. If you live in a dorm room, a less accessible apartment or just want to go green this Season and be creative; these easy DIY Christmas Trees are just for you.
Stylish Pallet Christmas Tree
This Tree looks like something out of the Modern Art Gallery and is a very convenient way to make the best out of waste. With the usual Christmas decorations hung up on a Pallet in the shape of Tree. All you need for this simple yet stylish Christmas tree is a wooden pallet, Christmas decorations, a small log of wood and some decorative lights. Tutorial link.
Innovative “Plane” Christmas Tree
Especially for people who do not have enough space in their homes to accommodate a full size Christmas Tree, this simplistic Plane Christmas Tree will be just right. Shaped and fastened together with sisal rope and decorated with beautiful handmade ornaments and lightings. The Plane Christmas Tree can be hung from the ceiling to save space and give it the right look. Tutorial link.
The Painted Pallet Christmas Tree
This is another creative and artistic angle of using the waste pallet you find near dumpsters and creating beautiful art out of it. The pallet can be stained or painted to give it the natural looking wood effect. No matter if you’re a professional painter or not, we all have drawn Christmas Trees in school, so just draw one on the pallet and paint it the way you want to. Once the Tree is ready, stick the ornaments into the pallet with the help of nails and hammer and decorate it as much as you wish. Tutorial link.
Crafty Christmas Tree From Books
For all those bookworms out there who have more books in their house than they can store, the Christmas tree made from books is the perfect choice and looks pretty amazing. The tree looks artsy and is very easy, all you have to do is start stacking books into an inverted conical shape to reflect the look of a real Christmas Tree. For decoration, swirling the decoration lights around the stacked books will give it a glimmering glow and use a pinecone as the Christmas tree topper. Tutorial link.
Christmas Tree Made From Plastic Spoons
This may seem like a bad idea, but you’ll be amazed at how gorgeous it turns out. The best part about the plastic spoon Christmas Tree is that all you need is some (a lot) plastic spoons, glue, scissors and paint. This can be a lovely project for even kids to work with and create their own recycled Christmas Tree. Start with snipping off the plastic spoons from the base and paint them the color you want (grey and brown also looks amazing other than the traditional green). Start pasting them from the back to one another, creating a Pine tree shape which is pointing upwards. Tutorial link.
Christmas Tree On The Wall
Love the smell of pine cones and leaves in the morning but can’t fit a Christmas Tree in your home? This will give your house the much needed Christmas spirit it needs with a Christmas Tree built directly on the wall. For this Christmas Tree, you need wood branches, about six of them in the size of ascending to descending (largest to smallest). Start with the largest at the bottom of the wall and the smallest at the top, giving it the Christmas tree shape and decorate them with pine leaves, pinecones and lights to complete it. Tutorial link.
