So if you read my blog post last week, you’ll remember the rainbow of alternative colors I showed you for Christmas decorating.
Well. As I was looking for all those lovely, colorful options to share with you, I also ran across some clever and humorous Christmas trees that people had created. So, thinking we could all use a little stress relief along about now, I thought I’d show you some of those. You don't mind Christmas trees two weeks in a row, do you?!
Elf OFF the shelf
If you're a fan of Elf the movie, or the Elf on the Shelf phenomenon, then you'll probably enjoy this tree. Actually it looks like the elf has fallen OFF the shelf. I think they're mixing their themes by throwing Frosty in there, however he seems to be enjoying a good laugh at the elf's expense.
A Christmas ladder
How fun is this?! Not sure why I like this one so much. Maybe because it's simple and uncluttered. And elegant in its own way. Too bad I lost my ladder a few years ago or this might be on my hearth right now. But I digress.
The (Christmas) Cookie Monster
Have ya got pre-schoolers hanging around your house? They'll either love this big blue monster tree or be scared out of their wits Christmas morning!
A pepperoni tree skirt
Every tree needs a decorative skirt, and sometimes we get hungry opening gifts. And nothing says "Christmas" like pepperoni and mushroom pizza, RIGHT?! However I think I might have used THAT tree skirt under the next tree...
The ALL red tree
I think this one speaks for itself. It's red. :-D
Cinnamon roll tree
I did promise "delicious..." Cinnamon rolls are my favorite breakfast on Christmas morning, and this one looks good enough to eat!
And here's a recipe for a similar tree but this one's a cheesy, garlicky version. Mmmm!
Here's a cute thing to serve at a buffet or take to a party. And since watermelon is his favorite, this one's for you, Dad!
And I've saved my favorite for last:
A "dressy" Christmas tree
Someone was oh so clever and turned a dress form turned into a Christmas tree. Festive AND elegant. Wouldn't this be great in an entry way or at a more formal party? Love, love, love this idea!
If you want to see a bunch more fun trees that I didn't have room for here, I've got a Creative Christmas Trees board set up on Pinterest. Get a load of the giant pineapple!
How about you? Which one was your favorite? Have you created an unusual Christmas tree? Drop me a comment below. I'd love to hear from you!
