Inspiration for the Small Wooden Christmas Tree

We all started with brown wooden legs that have a protruding screw. I went through my craft stash and found some wood slices and pinecones. These items inspired me to make a rustic themed small Christmas tree.

Step 1 – Attach the leg to the Base

Screw the wooden leg into the bottom of the wood stump. If your stump doesn’t already have a hole, drill one into the middle of the stump with an electric drill.
