Oh my goodness... now that Thanksgiving is over (::burp::) we don't have to be embarrassed about our incessant need to Christmas craft!! Yay!!
I hope you've enjoyed my Festival of Trees so far. I have a couple more I want to try but I have to get home from my Thanksgiving vacation first!
In the mean time, I will show you some fun trees from some readers as well as some I've seen around the blogosphere. You people are geniuses!
First up, these cute and CHEAP tinsel garland trees from The Beehive Times. Rolling posterboard into a cone is so smart and thrifty! Plus you can make much bigger trees that way! When I make mine this way from now on, pretend you didn't see this so you'll think I'm smart, k? Love these!

My final reader feature for the day comes from Heather at From My Home. Look at that cute button tree! She also made a fun ribbon tree and pompom tree as well so be sure to click the link and check them out too!

The web is currently chock full of fantastic crafty trees and who am I to keep them to myself? Here are some I've seen around lately a that I love!
Desiree from The 36th Avenue did a guest post on Tatertots & Jello and showed how to make these fun, whimsical cupcake liner trees. I might have to break up with some of my other trees and make these instead. Can you stand them?
For a cute 2D-ish art piece I loved this tree made from rolled up scrapbook paper! So cute and totally customizable to your style.
And finally, I have been searching high & low, but for some reason the garden centers aren't carrying tomato cages right now. Wha?? Don't they know I NEEEEED them for Christmas?? I have to make these trees for the pots on my front porch. I won't give up my search but I'm worried these will have to wait until next year. (anyone local have a couple rusty tomato cages they aren't using? I'll be your best friend.)
So there is my "Crafty Christmas Tree Round-Up" for today. Have you seen any to DIE for trees lately? Share! I'd love to see them too.

And I love these from Creative Mommas.... trees made out of tissue paper!
