  • I love all of these alternative Christmas trees! Especially the metallic ornaments and cactus :)

    g.

    • Yay! Oh man, that cactus one is so cute right? I’d probably leave it up year round :)

  • Ohhhh my goodness, how do you even find all of these?! And how are they not all in your home right now, ha!
    I could never choose between them all, they’re bright and cheerful and a bit out of the norm and I love them. Though I would probably end up with either the plywood one (because so many different things you could do with it!) or the disco ball one – partly because my favorite part of Christmas lights is them being bright and cheerful! xD

    • Let’s just say I might spend too much time on Pinterest ;)

      I’m right there with you for those choices! That disco ball one is just brilliant! So sparkly and fun. The bigger the better for Christmas, right?

  • These are all so good. Can I have the all in my house?

    • I said that too when I was making this list! When would we get considered crazy Christmas ladies?

    This is great. We’re in a condo and there is a no real tree policy. I don’t want to give up our limited storage to a tree so I’ve been thinking about flat wall hangings – great ideas!

    • Oh man, what a bummer rule! But the goodness is that you get to make something :) I love the wall hangings because you can use them year after year.

  • Love them all!
