7 Awesome DIY Non-Traditional Christmas Trees!

Have you put your tree up yet? I have been seeing the trees up for sale on every other block. Is it just me or is it super early for trees? As much as I love a real tree complete with falling pine needles and ornaments the little man can grab, I am thinking it might be nice to have a non-traditional tree this year. There are quite a few options out there that would be perfect for your family! Here are 7 really great non-traditional trees to choose from! My favorites are the lights tree and the chalkboard tree. So rad! Check them out and see if a non-traditional tree might be perfect for your family this year.
