DIY Plywood Christmas Tree

Now that Thanksgiving has come and gone, it’s full steam ahead on Christmas projects! Since I’ll be traveling for most of December, I haven’t decided whether or not I’ll be putting up a live tree in our house or not. In the meantime, because the holidays wait for no one,  I’ve teamed up with Velcro® Brand to make this removable plywood Christmas tree!

Plywood Christmas TreeStart by measuring out the dimensions of your tree. Since your pencil marks will be your guidelines when cutting, if you’re measurements are slightly off, the tree will look lopsided. Take your time!

Using cation, cut out your tree with a saw. I used a scroll saw for this, but any saw should do. Sand the sides and the front surface to even out any unwanted imperfections.

To hang, simply apply Velcro® Brand removable hangers stripes; one side will go on the back of your tree, the other on the wall. I used 5 total. These stripes are removable, so you’ll be able to take this off your wall without damaging it once the holidays are over! No nails required and renter friendly, yahoo!

Plywood Christmas TreeNow all that’s left to do is decorate! I used yarn and gift tags, but if you go larger, you could use this to display your Christmas cards. You might even be able to hang a few lightweight ornaments too.

    This is amazing! And I just love how you styled it with that chunky yarn and the cards! I’d love to have a live tree but we just don’t have the space, so I always come up with some sort of wall-hung option too. Love it!

      Ah what praise! Thanks Marlene! And I’m a bit bummed not to have a live tree this year, but this just makes so much more sense :)
