One year when I was very young and things were extremely tight, the two of us went into the next door field and cut a dead tree down. After we put it in the christmas tree stand we proceeded to spray paint it white. Put it in front of our picture window and decorated it as we would any christmas tree. That year we had people so many people coming to our house and telling us how awesome the tree was and taking pictures of it. As broke as we were I loved the tree more than any others we had, plus it completed our Christmas. My mom was so clever!

SO awesome..thanks for the post. This is my first year in an apartment and I can't afford and don't have room for a tree, artificial or non. :( Plus, without a car, I'd have no way to get it home. Way to live green!

Great ideas!! Do you have any more for bigger trees?

This is just the kind of post I'd been hoping for, thank you!
P.S. I didn't realise how convenient it has become to leave comments (back in the day, didn't we have to log in?) Had I known it was this easy, I would have commented before!
