recycled junk Christmas trees


A good old fashioned cheery Christmas song to sing along with on a rainy Thursday afternoon.




Being somewhat of a semi-invalid this past week has given me lots of time to surf the web and I found some really sweet Christmas trees that have been upcycled from "junk"  and odds and ends that you already have at home. I love the idea of making a unique tree and spending little or no money. 


old Christmas card trees


from rustic crafts


recycled magazine and junk mail trees


from recycle-eh


odds and ends of old sweaters felted and stacked to make a tree.


from hohum cards


toilet roll tree ( and you thought they just made good horns for the kids)


from happy chatter


This handyman's tree is interesting. Not sure I would want it in my house, but it did take ingenuity and in the interest of fair play I thought I should have one that was created by a man. (maybe this is why women do most of the decorating)

the step ladder tree. I love this one.


from funky junk interiors



Hope you have a holly jolly kind of day!
