Hello everyone its Christmas time again, this year i have caught the Christmas DIY creative bug 🙂
I’ve made a table top Christmas tree with lights. Its really easy. All you do is measure your 1×4’s in 3 20 inch pieces.
Cut your 30 degree off each edge, and do your dry fit so you know you got your angles right.
Then glue and nail each corner in.
I made a footing for the tree with the same 1×4 piece of wood.
Find your center on the bottom of your triangle. Mine was 20 inches long in total, so the center is 10 inches.
The foot i made was 5 inches in length.
Before you attach the base to the triangle i stained it (KONA). Staining project before final assemble make thing much easier.
I found some lights at the local dollar store, and just taped it on the inside.
