This is a creative way to build a Christmas tree that can be made up to any size if you have scrap wood laying around your woodworking shop. This DIY wooden Christmas tree by Moser Makes on YouTube can use up those extra scraps, because you’re going to need quite a few to make this tree. (Depending on the size) Also, it may be hard to find a tree this year so this is a nice alternative if you do not want an artificial one that’s made of plastic. Plus, Christmas trees can be expensive, and this DIY project could be budget-friendly if you already have most of the materials and supplies at your house.



  • galvanized pipe
  • flange
  • hole saw (slightly bigger in diameter of the pipe)
  • circular saw
  • string
  • pencil
  • spray paint
  • drill
  • short screws
  • wood


First, make the base of the Christmas tree by mounting the flange onto circular scrap plywood, and screw in the pipe to it. You can spray paint it any color you want.

In conclusion, this DIY Christmas tree is a great idea if you want a different version than a traditional one. I think it would be neat to try this type of tree out one year, except in a smaller version to put in another room. Although I think this is a cool idea, I love the big green fluffy ones to go into the living room.
