Weekend DIY: Make Your Christmas Tree

I love the smell of pine on Christmas but ah well, cutting the trees down to have them inside isn't the best we can do for the forest, is it! Unless you use a live Christmas tree, which you can later plant in your garden, or you gather fallen or broken branches thus helping clean the forest, you will not be extremely green. But you can always use your imagination and create unusual, unexpected and over-exciting Christmas tree out of almost anything!

You will need some wooden rails and hot glue for this one. Click here to get to the easy tutorial.
