There are twinkling stars in front of every house. As night falls, the balconies of every household can sparkle at night because they are decorated with various lights. People are getting ready for the anticipated New Year.
In our opinion, no holiday is more important than Christmas. When preparing for Christmas, buying or cutting down a tall Christmas tree is something that everyone has experienced.
I have a love-and-hate relationship with the Christmas tree that serves as a decoration in my living room: I love it because it's really pretty and sparkly, and I hate it because it's too big! What a difficult thing it would be if I wanted to place it on my desk or give it as a gift to a friend! But now I can realize these ideas through a laser cutting machine: TOOCAA and share this happiness with my family and friends.
There are many small Christmas trees we can DIY using laser cutters. Here are our recommended Christmas tree projects for reference only.
Christmas Tree Gift Creative Projects 2023
a) Scandinavian Christmas Tree
Scandinavian design is a kind of modernism. It's also a model of the combination of traditional handicrafts and modern large-scale industry.
The reason why Scandinavian design has gained praise and far-reaching influence is inextricably linked to its emphasis on the unity of form and function, its emphasis on the highly rationalistic practicality of products, and the simple beauty brought about by the rational use of natural materials. As the saying goes, “Less is more.”
To make this style of Christmas tree, we need to prepare a laser cutting machine, thick wooden boards, electric drills, cylindrical wooden sticks, steel bars, etc.
b) Small and cute Christmas tree
Wow! They are so cute! When I first saw these Christmas trees, I wanted to hold them carefully in my hands and look at them carefully.
They are so delicate and adorable that they will make your heart melt. If you are a happy angel who loves children and pets, you can try making these Christmas trees to put on your desktop.
c) Romantic art style Christmas tree
The simple shapes and regular combinations give us a full artistic atmosphere. Placing them at home will always make us calm down and appreciate their beauty every time we see them.

e) Christmas tree with hollow pendants
Minimalist art style with finishing touches. When I saw these works, one word flashed through my mind: Perfect. Our current life is increasingly filled with industrial products and lacks natural things, which has led to people's increasing desire for contact and harmony between man and nature. The integration of modern life and nature, etc. These works highlight the integration of industry and nature, the unity of machinery and ecology.
This article will be about making one of these, so let’s get started.
How to make a hollow Christmas tree efficiently
To make a Christmas tree with a hollowed-out effect, we need to prepare thicker boards, and it will take a long time to make such a tree with traditional woodworking tools. Fortunately, with the advancement of technology, we launched TOOCAA to break this limitation and unleash human creative potential. We don’t want any idea to be buried due to a lack of the right tools.
TOOCAA uses advanced laser and computer technology to redefine creation tools through industrial design, making creation efficient and safe. As an excellent desktop-level laser engraving and cutting machine, TOOCAA always adheres to user needs as the core and safety as our top priority. TOOCAA has an intelligent security system. It combines patented flame detection technology, body tilt detection technology, and cover opening interlocking technology to ensure the safety of every user during use. For school and home users, we have specially designed a USB child safety lock and optional emergency stop switch function, which is easy to operate and ensures user safety.
And the charm of TOOCAA goes far beyond that. The smart cover design effectively blocks laser light and smoke, allowing you to enjoy high performance while keeping the working environment clean. We also incorporate thoughtful elements into the simple design, such as the built-in fill light strip, allowing you to keep track of the machine's operation at any time. In addition, the smoke exhaust system can quickly discharge the smoke generated during the working process of the machine, reducing pollution to the working environment.
In the world of TOOCAA, we pursue the ultimate in technology and pay more attention to the safety of each user. We hope that every user who uses TOOCAA can deeply feel our persistence and persistence in security.
