With so much waste in the world, especially at Christmas time, we enjoyed making our Christmas tree from scraps of old wood & driftwood.
I seem to like unconventional Christmas trees and now my kids are grown up there hasn't been too much protesting about not having a traditional green tree with red decorations.
Every year I buy a few new decorations. I couldn't resist these with the rope hangers!
I glued tiny pieces of driftwood to make a star.
Simple wrapping using mostly recycled paper.

to make your own tree
you will need:
I painted some of the wood pieces white and sanded the edges. I'd like to say I made it all myself but Steve did the hard work, sawing and nailing. We nailed a few small flat head nails to hang decorations & wrapped Christmas lights around the branches.
What kind of Christmas tree are you having this year?
