My Festive Pallet Wood Tree:
First, find a pallet and remove the bottom deck boards and blocks. Next, simply draw or snap a line in a triangular shape on both sides of the center stringer board and cut through the deck boards with a power saw. Then, either use pieces of the leftover stringer boards or scrap 2×4″s to create the chunky and functional pedestal of the tree. Finally, let the painting or staining begin. I chose to paint mine white to make it feel more wintery and topped it with some lights, garland, and a few ornaments.
