Tis the season for Christmas decorating that I really meant to do two weeks ago! It was one of those Decembers that has blown by, with lots of holiday goodness, but I've neglected putting up our tree.
Given that many of the tree lots are a bit sparse by now, I jumped on Pinterest to find some alternative DIY Christmas trees. These ideas for simple, but beautiful table-top trees are lovely, and would look great in our living room. And we still have a spare side wall in our den that we be the perfect spot for a twinkling light tree.
We have an old wooden ladder that we still use to replace lightbulbs and the like, so I can't permanently use it for a DIY project (yet), but I could absolutely put to use for a while as a festive tree. We also have more books than any one couple who moves frequently has any right to own. I love the idea of a book tree!
These are fantastic modern christmas trees, both done with artificial trees that are still available on two-day shipping (whoot). I probably don't have the holiday hutzpah endurance to tackle the ombre tree this year, but it's gorgeous! I love the white pre-lit tree with a touch of rock n' roll glam- nothing a trip to the discount store and a can of gold spray paint couldn't do!
What do you think? What does your tree look like this year?
