2017 Alternative Christmas Trees
It’s that time of the year when I round up my favorite finds and ideas to create an alternative Christmas tree, without a tree. I found so many good ones this year that I couldn’t help but share an extensive collection for this post – so pardon me for the amount of ideas shared, but hey, in my book, the more options, the merrier.
