We love decorating for the holidays inside and out. For decorating your porch, you can build this INCREDIBLE Christmas tree poinsettia stand! This is an easy build and you can whip it up for your house too with the easy of Kreg Jig pocket hole joinery!


Follow the steps below to complete this project.


Cut Tree Backs

Trace out half a tree on a piece of plywood. Start on the short side of the plywood and draw out a bottom branch that tips at 3' wide. Work you way up with additional branches until you get to the top. Cut that out with a jigsaw, then trace that piece on the other side of plywood and cut out a second back.


Cut Three Shelves

Cut three shelves out of the plywood. Each shelf should have a 90 degree angle with straight sides to the following lengths: 12", 18", 24". Cut a curved angle to connect the two edges.


Connect Tree Backs

Drill 10 pocket holes along the back of one side of one of the tree backs. Connect that to the other straight side of the other tree back.


Attach Shelves

Attach the three shelves to the tree backs. Drill three pocket holes on the underside of each straight edge of each shelf. Attach the large shelf 2" from the bottom, then attach the other two shelves at appropriate heights for your cutout.


Paint Tree Green

Use a holly green spray paint and paint the entire tree.


Decorate with Poinsettias

Fill the shelves of your Christmas Tree Poinsettia Stand with live poinsettias and put on your porch. Everyone will love your new Christmas decor!
