Decorating for the holidays is truly a special time. Making those decorations makes it even more special knowing you created them especially to fit your home. Today I’m sharing this diy tree shaped wood shelf which makes a great addition to your holiday decor.
A DIY tutorial to build a tree shelf perfect for holiday decor. Free plans from Ana White make this an easy diy project for that special someone.
We’re back with another diy gift plan for the Handbuilt Holiday series and today it’s a beautiful tree shaped shelf that anyone would want! Ana White and I have the most fun deciding just which project to build each week, like kids in a candy store! We tend to focus on gifts for kids but this week our build is more geared towards the adults.
This decorative tree shelf is sure to be a wonderful addition to anyone’s Christmas decor:
This tree shelf is quite substantial and just the right size for lots of holiday decor. You could even fill it with 25 advent gifts to use as a countdown.
Inspired by Pottery Barn Kids tree shelf (which is no longer available):
Their version was on sale for $79 plus shipping but it’s not available anymore so you’ll have to make your own!
Don’t be intimidated by all the angled cuts. Ana has it all figured out in the plans and for the most part all the angles are the same.

Follow Ana’s plans to build the shelf. I used countersunk 1 1/4″ wood screws at every shelf. Wood glue and clamps will keep it all tight until the glue dries. If your tree shelf has a lot of wobble consider adding a full backing.
My shelf is stained with Minwax Early American and three basic black hooks attached across the bottom.
