I love repurposing old wood. 

I've used dresser drawers, old futons, and found wood to make new projects. 

Today I was eyeing a broken crate I had in the workshop for this project.

DIY Rustic Reclaimed Wood Christmas Trees

I used a small circular saw (which I use on everything) to cut from the corner of the board to the center of the top to create a triangle. One cut in each direction.

What was left after I cut the center triangle were 2 half triangles that fell off of each side.  So I used them too! 

As you can see below, the darker tree has a seam down the center.

I used rulers and wooden sticks for the tree trunks, gluing the triangles to the sticks using wood glue then securing them with a nail gun

I carved out a channel in a block of wood for the stand then wood glued the trunk into the base. 

I used antiquing gel to stain the bases, tree trunks, and a few of the trees.

I added a wooden star to the top of each tree. The stars were  painted silver and glittered.

These are headed for our local craft fair and I'm 
sure they won't last long.
