Welcome to Christmas in July at Dogs Don’t Eat Pizza HQ! I am excited to be contributing to this series with such talented bloggers!
And our Christmas tree, well, it’s a “faux” tree because the boys in our house are allergic to the real ones. Artificial. From Target (all good things come from Target – am I right?).
Pretty, but still a traditional tree.
I’ve been thinking about changing things up with our tree at our home. Something different, non-traditional, funky. So today I thought I’d give you some ideas for different, non-traditional Christmas trees.
Trees Made from Craft Supplies
I love this wrapping paper roll tree from A Little Tipsy:
How about a felt Christmas tree, from Forestry Handmade and featured on Mommy Footprint.com?
What about wine cork Christmas trees?
I think those would be adorable as table decorations. What a great reason to drink more wine!
And this wire tree with ornaments looks easy to make, but so festive:
Books as Christmas Trees
Sure, books are made of trees, but can you make trees out of books?
How about a ladder for a tree? Kelly at Eclectically Vintage made this one, and I love it!
That would be perfect for someone renting their home – totally removable and changeable.
Healthy and festive.
There you have it…when Christmas rolls around later this year, consider some other, non-traditional trees in your home. What I like about these ideas are: (1) most of them use things you probably already have in your home; and (2) you can incorporate them into your holiday decor AND still have a traditional tree. Score!
Tomorrow, Kristi from I Should Be Mopping the Floor takes over! I can’t wait to see her Christmas ideas!
