I can’t believe I’m about to say this, but it’s December 18th and I don’t yet have a Christmas tree up in my house. This is absolutely an anomaly in the history of my Christmases past! I blame it on a crazy schedule – somehow the month is slipping away and I haven’t even found time to get my holiday cheer going on. Maybe you’re in a similar boat? Or maybe you live in a teeny little place and think you can’t fit a tree in on top of everything else. Or, heck, maybe the budget just isn’t there this year! (Because, honestly, trees and the corresponding decorations they require really aren’t cheap.) Whatever the case may be, I’ve rounded up 10 really cool DIY Christmas tree alternatives that will be as cozy in your home as they are to your wallet. I may just be busting out a bit of crepe paper and joining the DIY tree crowd myself this year! nggallery id=128610
