While planning our Christmas decorations, I decided to make some new items. I cherish our heirloom decorations, but I wanted something new too. Therefore, I decided to DIY the unique tree decorations, stockings, blanket ladder, and tree box.
Since all our walls are white, we needed something to warm up the decor, so I wanted to add wood tones to our Christmas decor in the dining room. Hence, the Scandinavian Christmas Trees would be accessible using the leftover wood from the blanket ladder and the same vinyl designs I used on my DIY Christmas ornaments.

How to Make Wooden Christmas Trees
Supplies and Tools
- 2 x 4 wood scraps
- Table saw
- Sandpaper (100 and 200 grit)
- Chemical Gloves
- Vinyl Decal
Use your printed pattern and trace out the trees on the wood (this will be your cut line.)
To establish the correct angle for each tree size, you will need to line up the traced line on the right side of the tree, starting at the top point. Then push the miter fence to meet the bottom of the woodblock and secure the wall at the angle.
Note: Each size of the tree will be a different angle.

We added a piece of painter’s tape to mark the center of the saw blade.
You will turn it over and cut in the same fashion as the first to cut the other side.
Once I cut out the trees, I am ready to sand any rough edges, first with 100 grit sandpaper and then with 220 grit sandpaper.
For our favorite staining method, we use a piece of upholstery foam and dip the foam into the stain and apply it to trees. Again, follow the manufacturer’s instructions on the can.

Since our family room was under construction, I wanted some Christmas decorations in the dining room. Therefore, I asked Mr. Kippi to make us a blanket ladder for our Christmas stocking. I made these stockings to match my Christmas decorations in my dining room. You can find my Christmas stocking pattern and instructions in this post.
