How to Build a Christmas Tree Poinsettia Stand
Several years ago, we built a three-tiered plant stand that sits in the corner of our porch. We usually decorate it with poinsettias and other Christmas decor, but we wanted to change things up.
This stand is actually shaped like a Christmas tree, adding a touch more holiday spirit.
Tools & Supplies used:
For this build, we bought two full sheets of plywood. You can definitely build it with just one, but if you want to have perfectly square corners on your shelves and aren’t 100% confident with your jigsaw skills, we recommend using two sheets.
One sheet can be for your tree and the corners of the other sheet for your shelves. And hey, that way you have extra plywood for you next project if you want to build a Christmas card holder!
We started by tracing half of a Christmas tree on the 4″ side of a piece of plywood. Then we cut that out, clamped it back onto the plywood and cut out a second half.
Then we added pocket holes to the back of one tree half and attached it to the other half at a right angle.
Next we cut out three shelves. Each shelf was progressively longer on the sides and each had a rounded front from side to side.
We used our Kreg 320 Jig again here to attach these using pocket holes.
The tree was finished with two cans of green spray paint.
