Coffee Filter Tree

Quick and easy to make, create this tree by layering a bunch of coffee filters on top of a Styrofoam tree form -- you'll have to cut the centers out once you get to the base. Because the filters have a natural ruffle to them, all you need to do is add a star at the top of your tree and glue on some festive buttons or sequins as ornaments.

Jingle Bell Garland

Jingle all the way with this crafty crocheted garland. Even if you're a novice when it comes to knitting needles, you can easily make this string of jingle bells. Just attach your bells to some red yarn and make about 15 slip knots between each bell. When you're done, wrap around your tree and start decorating.

Pine Tree Topiary

Even better than a Charlie Brown Christmas tree, these mini pine tree topiaries are a great addition to your holiday table, mantle, or even front porch. Just stick a pine tree branch (better if you use a fake one) into a pot filled with plaster or floral foam, and wrap the base in burlap to make it look wintery and rustic.
