EASY CHRISTMAS TREE DISPLAY
This is a very simple design, so don't worry. Even though it looks complicated, you'll see it's definitely not.
I started out with some plain pieces of pine boards from our local home goods department store, Lowes. Here's what they looked like. I grabbed a few in different sizes.
They come in various widths and lengths.
Then I just free handed, in pencil, some tree edges right on the board where I'd cut them out with a jigsaw.
This is the shape of the edges you want to create.
Painted it a forest green all over and then dry rubbed on some black streaks for contrast.
The box I had found was perfect for a base. So I sit the base inside the box and screwed on the flat piece of lumber to the bottom. Just to make sure it had enough weight to hold it down in place while standing.
It was just an old rough piece I had on hand. It worked great. I didn't mind the previous existing nail holes to the right.
And to make a hanging spot for hooked items,
I just tapped in some small steeples, or some call them large staples.
They are just U shaped and strong enough to hammer in with ease.
Leave them sticking out far enough so you can hang items though!
