How to Make a Simple Wood Christmas Tree 

  1.  Cut two pieces of wood with 50° angles
  2. Line up the top of the “tree” so that one 50° angle butts up against the other 
  3. Cut 20° angle in another piece of 1 x 3 for the bottom of the triangle. Determine how large you want your tree, make a 20 degree cut on the other side of this piece.
  4. Put the bottom of the triangle in place and then trim off the sides of the tree with 20° cuts.
  5. Create a base that is approx 1/3rd of the triangle bottom length, for a larger tree you can create a trunk too. See my two examples.
  6. With a brad nail gun, secure the tree together.
  7. Stain or paint the wood as desired.

I decided to use some stain, leftover paint & cane to decorate my trees. I used my staple gun to attach the cane to the back of the trees.
