Maybe you’ve had one idea of what a shim tree looks like. Well, my crafting sisters and I challenged ourselves to come up with seven unique ways to make a wooden shim tree! You’re gonna love all these ideas!

Black & White Snowball Tree

Three shims and some snowballs! That’s all it took for this tree to come together! I backed it with a burlap and white elegant frame and added a knob for the trunk and a rusty spring star to finish it off! Let me show you how I brought it all together >>HERE<<

Traffic Cone Shim Tree

Have you seen the toy traffic cones at the Dollar Tree?? Can you believe that is the base for this amazing tree?! Ms Darra from Lattice and Lace: DIY’s, Creations, & Designs made this one! Check out her video tutorial >>HERE<< to see how she did it! 

Miniature Shims North Star Tree

This ideas was genius that Ms Angela had from Word & Home! She had her hubby cut the shims into miniature shims! How fun is this?! I love the layers and that star just makes it, right?! She has that star in her shop if you’re interested! Watch her tutorial for this fun tree >>HERE<<

Shim Tower Tree

Talk about thinking outside of the box! Ms Amanda from Amanda Made created this shim tree tower with different size pieces of cut shims! This would be a great conversation piece at your holiday get togethers! See how she made it >>HERE<<!

Vintage Style Shim Tree

How adorably sweet is this vintage style tree that Ms Hilde’ made? That little bird up top was the icing on this cake! I love the different shades of color she added to this tree, too! Very vintage feel with that background paper, don’t ya think?! See the live tutorial from Simple Crafting at Hilde’s Farmhouse >>HERE<<

Rotating Shim Tree

This next tree has a unique rotating feature! You can enjoy it flat or you can turn the inside tree and enjoy it 3D! Ms Agnes from Just That Perfect Piece created this one! See her video tutorial >>HERE<<

Dollar Tree Tin Shim Tree

Last but not least, this tin shim tree was made by Ms Judy from The Crafty House! I love the addition of the greenery and the snow! And that trunk!! Watch her put it together >>HERE<<!

    Hey girl, my house is so small I am having a hard time making the seasonal items, just no place to put them. I can’t get around to Nursing Homes or anything like that to give. Maybe a craft that I can add a little something for holiday but could leave out most of the time would work best for me. I love all your ideas and appreciate you and your husband sharing videos to us. Norma Jean
