Oh Christmas Tree, How Lovely Are Thy Branches

You guys always link up the most wonderful trees, so I thought I would share a few that give tutorials on how to create the same look.

Paper Daisy Designs shares her tutorial for this fabulous chalkboard banner, so fun.

Purple Hues and Me shows us you don't even have to have a real tree, love this idea.

Meeha Meeha did another wall tree with toys.  How cute and clever.

I love this burlap and cotton tree from Bohemian Junction. (See the cotton bolls)

If you live by the coast, then a seashell tree like this one from Lavender Dreams would be perfect..

Remodelando la Casa gave us a tutorial for this really fun tree made out of ribbon spools.  Cute, cute, cute.

Several of you came up with ideas for Twig trees like this one from Learning, Creating, Living

Several of you also had tutorials for paper trees like these shared by SimpleJoys

There were tons more with folded pages from books, burlap, fabric, ribbon and christmas balls.  You guys are totally amazing and wow, the creativity is unreal.
