1. "Deck the Halls" is a Vintage Tree decked with fresh flowers, decoupaged ornaments made out of pages from vintage books, and a beautiful paper star. It's style is casual elegance and would appeal to someone who decorates their home in a traditional style, a perfect tree for the foyer.

2. "O Christmas Tree" is my simple organic tree. I went to the Christmas lot and retrieved the stumps and branches that were being disguarded. To make these trees, stick the branches into the 4 inch trunk piece where the hole had already been bored. I placed a ribbon on the tree and it is finished. Three "Charlie Brown Trees" down the middle of your Christmas table make a perfect, inexpensive tablescape even your children can make.

3. "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" is a cozy, feel-good tree adorned with little white mittens, pom poms, and hearts, all made out of old wool sweaters. This is my re-purposed tree. It's a perfect gift for grandmothers if you put the names of grandchildren on the mittens or for teachers if each student made a mitten out of newspaper.
