Cut a 6" piece of 3/4" dowel with a 45-degree cut on one end. Attach the flat end to the post cap by driving a 1-1/2" wood screw from the underside of the cap into the dowel to form the trunk of the tree.
Cut a 4" piece and a 2" piece of 3/4" dowel, both with 45-degree miters on one end. Glue them together at a 90-degree angle to form an L-shape and let dry. Then glue the combined piece to top of the 6" piece to split the trunk.
Use 22.5-degree, 45-degree, and 90-degree miter settings to cut several pieces of 1/2" and 3/8" dowel in lengths ranging from 3" to 5". Glue them to the two 3/4" dowels branching up from the 6" piece to form the large branches of the tree.
Cut several 1/4" dowels into pieces ranging from 1" to 4" and glue to the larger dowels. Repeat as desired to complete the tree.
Paint the tree if desired and let dry. (We used Valspar Signature Twist of Lime.)
Glue the post cap to the tile and clamp until dry.
