DIY Wood-Scrap Christmas Tree

OK, so I have been dying to share this project with you guys for months (literally)! This year our church has been going through a series called The Story. It’s not the Bible, but it is all scripture put into chronological order so it reads like a novel. With The Story we just happened to be reading the Christmas story in July…so of course we had to have a Christmas in July celebration!

My husband and his fabulous team put together an incredible set with pallets and lights. If I could have brought it all home with me I would have (don’t think I didn’t try). But the focal point of the whole set was this gorgeous pallet wood Christmas tree they assembled. When I first saw it my jaw dropped. It was every crafters dream tree! My heart broke a little when I was told that I couldn’t actually bring the tree home and store it for 5 months until Christmas. *sigh*

Fortunately, this really is an almost free project. There was a center wooden post and four more coming down (like a teepee) for stability. The scraps of pallet wood were simply air-nailed around the posts until the desired look was achieved.

I just can’t get over how this simple and understated tree can be so incredibly stunning!
