I’m loving all of the creative, non-traditional Christmas trees that are out in blogland right now. Before my parent’s gave me their old tree, I was dreaming up ways that I would decorate for Christmas without a tree. There’s so many fun materials that you can mold, stack, or bend into a tree shape, so I rounded up all of the ones from the blogosphere that caught my eye.

This one from Martha Stewart’s site. I’d love to even just do this outside or on the front door. Is it too late to hang lights? I feel like the last three weeks got away from me. How’d that happen?

These reclaimed wood trees I love! They are from Wood Wool Stool and they cost 25 Euros so about $33. So cute!

Here in Austin there are loads of people decorating their agave plants. It’s so cute and festive. On my drive to work, I pass a ton of these that people have decorated. Creative and fun! This one captured by Gardening Gone Wild is perfect (via Pinterest)!

This fun toile and dryer sheet tree is from Myric at Petite Passions and featured on The Artsy Girl Connection. This one is tiny but it’d be awesome to do a large scale of!

This one from  Home Life via Hello Little One is an awesome way to use all of those cards you get for Christmas. You could even just take the cards from the previous year and put them up. Then see how much other families have changed in a year. Creative and sentimental.

What unique, non-traditional trees have you seen out there? I’d love to know! Hope today is a great start to your week!
