Terrific Trio: 3 fabulous DIY Christmas trees

by Tasneem Merchant Dec 22, 2015

Christmas comes but once a year and that should give you all the more reason to make the most of it! Instead of decorating just one evergreen, we present to you three unique ways in which you can create a memorable Christmas tree using your creativity and craftiness. 

Get the minimalist look – twist the rope light into ever diminishing loops, tape it to a glass window, crown with a star and turn on the power. 

For a quirky touch – cut a mount board, keeping it erect by reinforcing the back with more board and cover it with memos of varying sizes.

Prefer a scholarly celebration? Align books colour wise on a shelf, using fairy lights for some twinkle and a wooden tea-light holder as the base
