To make this alternative Christmas tree you will need plywood for creating a decorative panel for your wall, a ruler, a few nails, a hammer, spray paints and string made of natural fiber. The star top is made of cooking twine. It takes approximately 1 -3 hours to make this Christmas tree.

Step 1. Decide what size tree will best fit your space. Get plywood cut to size at a hardware store.

Step 2. With ruler and pencil, draw lines every 3 cm horizontally and vertically to create a grid on the plywood. Mark a dot at every second intersection along bottom line. On the next line up, mark the alternate dots. Continue on all lines.

Step 3.  Hammer nails into plywood where you have marked dots, creating a Christmas tree shape.

Step 4.  Spray-paint board (with nails in) white. Allow to dry.

Step 5.  Using natural string, tie a knot around a nail at the top of the tree and work your way around the other nails randomly but methodically. Try not to overlap lines though. Once tree is covered, tie a knot on the last nail. Lean board against a wall and hang ornaments on nails.
