Did you know that 25-30 million real Christmas trees are sold every year?
After all, every home that celebrates Christmas does so with a tree. Naturally, people get creative and think outside the box with traditions and as of late people have been making peg board Christmas trees!
Check out how it’s made:
- Rotary or Skill Saw
- Two Screw and Bolt sets
- Ceramic Planter
- Mint Green Paint and Brush (optional)
Step 1: Cutting the Tree
Start by mixing the quick cement into your planter with the inserted metal pole until it is fully set. While your alternative tree trunk is setting, take your Skill Saw and cut a long triangle piece of the pegboard to represent the outline of the tree.
Step 2: Put it into Place
Take your screw and bolt sets and attach the pegboard to the metal pole. Once secured, bring out your favorite spray paint and spray the entire thing in your favorite color.
Once dried, take your secondary color and paint the metal pole.
Step 3: Make it your Own
Now the paint is dried, its time to add your personal touch to it. Find ornaments that compliment your style and personality that emphasize your love for the Christmas holiday.
And voila, you just made a Pegboard Christmas Tree!
The Christmas Tree industry is a strong one in several states (Oregon, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Michigan, Wisconsin, and Washington) as only 20% of households in the United States do not partake in that Christmas tradition. That being said, many people are turning toward the alternative holiday tree to spice things up. Some have made holiday trees out of a ladder with twin while others have made a lampshade tree.
Regardless of your tree preference, the Habitat Stores are filled with resources for one to use for their DIY decoration projects from paint to glue, we got you covered.
