How to DIY a Christmas tree wall unit


It can be difficult to fit a big bushy Christmas tree into your home, can’t it? Especially if you’re living in a flat (how do you even get it up the stairs?!) or a cosy terrace with Victorian proportions. If you’re lacking in space but still want to feel festive, how about making my Christmas tree shelving project?! It gives you space to stack presents on the shelves and you can hang your stocking on the hooks. And the glinting gold distressed edges look rather festive, especially when strewn with fairy lights…This cute wooden Christmas tree is my latest project for the HandyMano blog so you can find the step-by-step guide to this festive DIY project on the website. I’ve made and handy cheat-sheet of measurements and angles so that those tricky triangular ends don’t end up causing a nightmare before Christmas.I loved making the Christmas tree wall unit and it’s actually rather handy shelving for all year round. I love a bit of gold in my office, so that’s probably where it’ll go after Santa has visited. What do you think of this festive DIY project? Will you have a go at making it for yourself? How about making one without the stocking hooks to create a minimalist shelving unit that you can hang in the hallway to hold post, or use in the kids’ bedroom to display their favourite toys?  Let me know if you make a Christmas tree shelf for yourself – I’d love to see it so please tag me in your pics on Instagram @Cassiefairy.
