Pallet Christmas Trees1

Outdoor Pallet Christmas Trees also made with only one discarded wooden pallet.

Pallet Christmas Trees2
Another fun design - and terrific for outdoors!

A beautiful Christmas stand for kids that can be converted into a lemonade stand for the summer. A great stand - easily made by designing a box or even copying one of our numerous pallet bar designs, and then adding two vertical pieces to support whatever style sign you wish to display!


A pallet Christmas tree ready to welcome presents from Santa. Instead of spacing the boards, pack them tighter to give that illusion of a lush tree. Then decorate at will! Gorgeous, indoors or out!

Pallet Christmas Trees4

A Christmas Advent calendar made from one single repurposed pallet. All you have to do is to remove one deck and leave the other intact! Then, hand-paint or stencil the numbers (and any other decorations) you want onto the pallet. This would be wonderful to have the kids help with!

Pallet Christmas Trees5

This tree is made out of recycled pallet planks and decorated with Christmas balls & felt garlands. This ingenious little tree is made using a lovely branch as the center, and the deck boards are drilled out and secured in place (or you could make half-lap joints, cut the branch into pieces and glue..., etc.). This could decorate your house and help clean up your yard at the same time! :)

Pallet Christmas Trees6

A simple and lovely Christmas tree made from one single pallet and decorated with a light string. Another easy idea - and you could burn the wood or stain it dark to get that, beautiful effect. The cute little lights highlight the wonderful wood grain visible!

Pallet Christmas Trees7

A fresh Christmas tree made from one single pallet. Just saw a triangle out of a wooden pallet, put some screws, paint it, add decorations and voila!

Pallet Christmas Trees8
Tremendously Triangular! The silver paint makes it even more festive!

Another 3D Christmas tree made from one upcycled pallet. Stable and eye-catching! This ultra-modern take on a Christmas tree is a show-stopper! Just take your time to cut your angles right! You could even make this tree so you could fold or easily disassemble it for storage under your bed or back of the closet!

Pallet Christmas Trees9

Pallet Christmas Trees in a Christmas Tree shape! This is a tree that begs for spotlighting to cast fantastic shadows! Simple idea, and if you work with thin pieces, very easy to make (you could even staple the pieces together).

Pallet Christmas Trees10

Christmas wall art made from reclaimed pallet wood. But it's not all about the trees. Don't forget the trimmings for the rest of the house, and the front yard, and the backyard.... :)

Pallet Christmas Trees11

A different take on Pallet Christmas Trees! Just paint a Christmas tree on an old pallet, add some nails, and hang decorations on it. A perfect project for the kids (so you can assemble some of those presents you purchased them)! Only paint a tree shape of your design onto a pallet. Let it dry, and decorate at will!

Pallet Christmas Trees12

Beautiful Christmas tree made with more than 50 pieces of pallet planks. Love the shape and the decorations! It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas! This is a great way to bring holiday cheer while using scraps from other projects! Drill the pieces and then stagger them to create a round, full, shape.

Pallet Christmas Trees14

Very original Christmas tree with an unusual shape. Made with one pallet and a half and it took around 4 hours to make it. Unusual areas demand unusual and creative designs like this one. Some trees are tall, and some are shorter. This one is so cute and pinecone-shaped!

If you're fed up with real Christmas trees, here's a sweet and simple Christmas tree to do with one single pallet, some white paint (or other colors) and decorations. It's a snowy tree! Just stain or paint the pallet a darker tone, and then put a white tree over it. Another kid-friendly design. If you're worried about chemicals, try PureColor's line of VOC-free, non-toxic stains.

The Guinness world record pallet Christmas tree! This tree was built in 2015 in Leiria (Portugal), it is made of 2,200 wood pallets, 3000 screws and weight 28 tons, not something to do at home...unless you have a huge garden to set it up! :) Check out all the details of this huge Christmas tree!


Cute little Christmas tree as candle holders! If you cannot find 2,200 pallets to build the one above, you can build several of these ones with one single pallet!


Love this one, from pallet wood and with old tools as decorations, a lot of creativity was put inside this Christmas tree!


This tree is not from pallet wood (but the wall behind is!) but from a lot of storm lights! How much? I let you count :)
