Creative Christmas Tree Crafts Made from Wood

We’ve assembled 29 fun and festive project ideas in this Christmas tree-themed round up. These crafts will cover decor for your home, your outside porch or even to give as thoughtful gift giving idea.

We’ve divided the round up into different wood surfaces so you can easily scroll through to find projects you wish to make. There are several ideas using driftwood, beautiful rustic weathered wood from the beach and then plenty of crafts made with scrap wood material, anything from leftwood wood, moulding or plywood.

Driftwood Christmas Tree Crafts

Combining Christmas with coastal decor is right up my alley! Since collecting driftwood is a favorite past time, using the beach finds to make Christmas tree crafts is ideal. We even sell our driftwood tabletop trees in our Sustain My Craft Habit Etsy shop.
