DIY Rustic Pine Christmas Trees

PicMonkey Collage

I have been dreaming up ideas to make cute little Christmas trees for quite a while now. Many ideas for these little Christmas trees were going around in my head, but one day I was at my local hardware store & I stumbled across some pine kindling & knew I had to make some Christmas trees out of it.

These little guys were pretty simple to make. The hardest part was that each piece of kindling is unique & it doesn’t fit together like a puzzle. You just have to work with the kindling until you get it the way you want it. Like I said, I purchased my kindling at my local hardware store, but I searched it online & I found it on Amazon {here}. I did not have that big of a bag {I payed about 7 dollars for a bag that was enough for 3 trees.} You can use wood shims found at any hardware store, make your own kindling, really any wood pieces will work!

I started with 3 styrofoam cones from Michaels. I emptied the bag of pine pieces & sorted them by sizes. I started at the bottom & did a layer all along the bottom by hot glueing them to the styrofoam. After that I did the top layer {adding one shim on the point at  the top first to lean the top layer on} After the top layer was done. I added a middle layer to hide the seam between the top and bottom layers. All of this was done with hot glue which worked pretty nicely for this project.

  3. Very clever!!

  4. So cute Liz!

  5. How cute?! I love them. They’re just perfect for a rustic Christmas!

  6. I love these Liz! : )

  7. These are so sweet, you could even put a little silver star on top of the middle one with the longer centre piece, very cute.

    Great idea, might be making a few myself, thanks for the idea Liz :)

  8. So clever. I just adore the trees. Simply precious.

  9. Such a cute idea, love them! They’d be pretty in white, too!

  10. I love these! They are selling trees almost identical to them at Target, and thought they were so quaint and beautiful. Unfortunately, not enough for me to buy at $20 each! Yours turned out just as fab, and I’m glad you shared the tutorial on your blog. Thanks!

  11. so cute Liz!

  12. You’re quite innovative, cute idea. I’ll have to keep my eye out for a bag of that kindling or shims next time we go to Lowe’s or even our new True Value close to our house. I might cut the pieces smaller to make shorter layers. That’s just me. Will have to see how it goes. I can never leave something alone, seem to need to find other ways to do projects. Maybe spray paint the wood also, sprinkle on some glitter or faux snow.
    Your trees are really cute, love how they look just as they are. Don’t mind me ok?

  13. How fun! Love these…..we have a huge box of fat wood that would be perfect. I might have to haul it out early. =) Happy Sunday!

  14. Liz, I LOVE these! Such a creative idea. Thanks for the inspiration!

  15. just spotted these at Target today. Good eye Liz!

  16. These are adorable! I love the idea. Thanks so much for sharing!

  17. Aw, this was a really nice post. Spending some time and actual effort to produce a good article… but what can I say… I put things
    off a lot and don’t manage to get nearly anything done.
