View driftwood Christmas trees PRICES, PHOTOS, and INFORMATION below. We make and sell small driftwood Christmas trees in South Africa, using driftwood pieces we have found ourselves, on South African beaches in or near East London.
This page describes our chunky table top driftwood Christmas trees. Our driftwood Christmas trees come in one size only – a medium sized driftwood Christmas tree. We also sell small hanging driftwood Christmas trees, in 3 sizes.
What do we mean by CHUNKY driftwood Christmas tree?
We use a driftwood piece for the stem of our chunky driftwood Christmas trees, rather than thick wire or an iron rod, for something a bit different, and for something more natural than wire or an iron rod. Using a driftwood piece that is strong enough for creating the stem for the driftwood Christmas trees means that it can’t be too skinny. This in turn means that the holes drilled into the branches of the driftwood Christmas tree need to be big enough for the “stem” to slide through – thus, thicker – or chunkier – “branches” are required, rather than skinnier ones.

The longest driftwood piece across the bottom (the lowest “branch”) is roughly 37cm long.
From the bottom of the pine block base to the top of the “stem” your tree stands roughly 55cm high.
The pine block base for the tree is roughly 9cm x 9cm x 13cm.
The hole in the middle of the pine block is roughly 22mm wide and 7.5cm deep.
The top of the stem sticks out about 5 to 8cm, giving you a space at the top for a Christmas tree ornament or decoration.
1 x Table Top Driftwood Christmas Tree – R230
2 x Table Top Driftwood Christmas Trees – R220 each
3 to 9 Table Top Driftwood Christmas Trees – R200 each
10 or more Table Top Driftwood Christmas Trees – R175 each
The amount of driftwood pieces used to form the branches of each of our driftwood Christmas trees varies depending on their thickness, but it is usually about 10 to 12 driftwood pieces. Each tree we make is unique because of all the different driftwood pieces we find at the beach.
The branches (the driftwood pieces) are removable, slide them on or off the “stem” driftwood piece – when moving the tree, grab and lift the pine block base, don’t lift from the top tip of the tree!
Postage and packaging
The tree is packaged for postage all ready, looking like a “flat” Christmas tree (the “branches” all aligned – you can adjust them at any angle you want yourself).
We only know the postage and packaging price once we know what your order is, but for just one tree the postage will likely be at least R139 via Postnet to Postnet, and packaging will be at least R40.
About the roughly 9cm x 9cm x 13cm pine block base
The pine block base is rough, but has been lightly sanded. These pine blocks are the blocks found beneath wooden pallets.
When not using your Christmas tree, the pine block base makes a nice decor item.
Use your imagination and get creative with what you decide to put into the 22m wide x 7cm deep hole in the pine block – a candle (since the width of the hole is standard candle width), feathers, a pen and pencil, or two pens, a single driftwood stick and place your bathroom’s toilet paper rolls over it (a toilet roll holder!), dry grasses, a few sticks, a few small and skinny driftwood sticks – plain or painted, put some soil into the hole and plant a tiny plant, or insert a tiny plastic or glass jar and fill with water and use your pine block to display a small bunch of flowers. Use your imagination!
Ideas for Displaying or Decorating our Driftwood Christmas Trees
Leave your tree plain, or paint it
Leave the pine block base plain, or paint it
Leave the pine block base plain, or decorate it with lace or ribbon
Set the branches at diagonals to each other, or leave all aligned.
Slide the “branches” off the driftwood tree stem, and then back on again, alternating with something you’d like to slide onto the stem between each driftwood piece – even use less of the driftwood pieces if you want to slide something quite big between each horizontal driftwood piece
Keep the driftwood stem of the tree as a spare, and use something else for the stem of your driftwood Christmas tree (roughly the same thickness as a standard candle).
Use these table top driftwood Christmas trees as table decor at a November or December casual or office Christmas party, or at a beach themed December wedding.
Use in rustic or beach themed accommodation establishment rooms in December.
Use to decorate your appropriately-themed store in December.
Buy in bulk (3 or more) and sell in your own store, individually, for more – or sell at a craft market.
