Paint your DIY pallet tree with any good quality outdoor paint. I did alternating pieces with red and green. You can use any colors that you love on your version. Allow to dry completely before continuing.
Flip over your piece and add lights all around the back as shown below. I carefully used a staple gun to secure the strands to the wood. Be sure not to get the staples in your electric cord. You want each staple to be around the cord only.

If you want more information on uploading images to Cricut Design Space, you can click here for a video. Then just weed your vinyl to remove any excess and use transfer tape to start adding to your pallet Christmas tree.
Continue all the way down the tree then set it outside and light it up! If you want to add this DIY pallet tree to your yard, I would recommend nailing a long stake to the bottom so your can secure into the ground.
Another neat way to use this Darice wood pallet tree is to make a DIY Christmas Card Holder.
