Unusual Christmas trees

Christmas is my favorite time of the year, I love the white lights, the soothing music, the candles.
It really holds a special place in my heart.
This year I am adding "trees" around the house.
I am going to give you few examples of what I came up with.
First I am using a cupcake holder I found not too long ago for $1.
Add apples, and you have this.
You could also use green apples or mix it.
In this one I am


using a book...
...or a magazine
***I will show you tomorrow how this looks like now***

And finally pictures 
(or Christmas cards...as they start to come in) can be arranged in a Christmas tree shape.

Stay Frugal,
Daniela

ps. I just took the Etsy plunge 
and listed 9 sets of Flour sack towels.
