Every year, we reach for the same old Christmas tree that we keep in the attic, or we buy the same basic fur tree from the local store. We decorate it with painfully familiar ornaments and fairy lights. We decided that there’s room for a bit more creativity here, so we put together 15 of the best ideas we could find for creating a new, original Christmas tree. You can make all these things with your own hands, and we guarantee that they will forever change your expectations of what it means to make a good symbol of the upcoming new year celebration.
