DIY Wooden Christmas Trees

If you enjoy the idea of an alternative Christmas tree or if you want a festive decoration that is a little different, then why not try a wooden triangle-shaped tree?

You can really get creative with this idea by using different colors, adding various ornaments, and playing with size and scale. You can use either scrap wood or shims. Choose to either have a backing if you want to place items inside or just make a triangle frame to form the tree's shape.

This wooden Christmas tree will really add to your holiday decor. Incorporate beautiful buffalo plaid patterns as a backing or bows. Of course, you can also purchase similar in stores and online if you don't feel like making them yourself.
