Green Holiday Tip: Alternative Tree Ideas

Looking for a fun, creative alternative for your Christmas tree this year?  I got this idea from CB2.com. It’s prefect for city dwellers who don’t have much room for a large tree, those that want a mess-free option, or those that just want to keep trees in the ground. Also perfect for people like us with small children who love to pull things, knock things over, and create a path of destruction throughout the home ;-)

Some of these ornaments are also from CB2 – couldn’t resist the fuzzy orange, white and turquoise astro-like ornaments. The top one is recycled paper.

You can easily make your own ornaments. Here are a few resources to check out:
