1 Us­ing a ver­ti­cal strut of the pal­let as the cen­tral point, draw di­ag­o­nal lines down the pal­let to form the sides of the tree. Cut along these lines us­ing an elec­tric jig­saw (or hand saw) and re­move the ex­cess wood. Sand down any rough edges with sand­pa­per. 2 Draw a star shape onto a piece of paper and use this as a tem­plate to cut it from a piece of wood. Nail the star to the top of the tree and at­tach pic­ture pins to the wooden tree, from which you can hang dec­o­ra­tions. Make sure you use pic­ture pins with raised heads to stop the dec­o­ra­tions from slid­ing off.
