diy mini christmas trees!

diytree1DSC03836

I'm being a slight overachiever this year with my holiday decorating. Remember when I told you that my basement was flooded and a ton of our belongings were wrecked? Yeah well, that included all ours ornaments and christmas decor. I didn't actually realize this until after Thanksgiving when I went to look for some lights to string around the house. Totes bummer.

But instead of being mopey and buying stuff, I decided to take this opportunity to use what I have at home to make some cute decor! Check out these adorable pastel paper trees that I have displaying on one of my end tables. They cost me a grand total of $0. I have the super easy DIY project complete with pictures in this month's issue of The Fox Magazine!

  3. They're so cute, Laura! The year's about to end and I haven't even done any DIY! I feel so bad! I've long been wanting a floral headband. Maybe tomorrow.

  9. Oh nooo! I'm so sorry about all of your decorations. I would be so sad to lose everything. These little trees turned out so cute though. And you really can't beat a decoration that costs $0.
