Make My Monday Pretty — Upcycled Christmas Trees

Monday, December 5, 2016

Hello my Lovlies — Happy Monday! 

It's only 20 days till Christmas, so I thought I'd make Cynthia's Make My Monday pretty about upcycled Christmas tree ideas.

These ideas and pictures all came from Diply.

You could potentially attempt to glue together triangular pieces of cardboard to make a big 3D triangle and then glue on unwanted CDs and/or DVDs making sure they overlap a bit so that the cardboard doesn't peek through.

You could make this at home if you're creative and crafty enough! 

If you can find different sized plastic circles or if you could cut them out yourself, you can place a row of bottles on the ground then place the largest circle on the bottom and continue upwards, going smaller and smaller as you reach the top. 

This is definitely not an ideal tree if you have kids or pets as they can push it down and the glass will break. Make it if you dare!

Note: you could also make these with plastic bottles to be safe.

You could make this at home by using books that have green book covers, or you could paste green paper on the covers (if you're no longer using these books, of course!). 

Stack them in a disorderly fashion that somehow works into making it look like a Christmas tree, starting from the largest to the smallest and top it off with a bead garland and a star. 

Grab an old rake and separate the handle from the head. Glue on some buttons to look like ornaments and a pretty star on top! This would be cute for the backyard or a shed.

Well my Lovlies, I hope I've given you some inspiration to get your creative juices flowing to create your own upcycled Christmas tree.

Comment below and share your ideas for an upcycled and/or alternative type of Christmas tree.
