An idea for how I use stuff around the house and repurpose it for Christmas. Note, do not try this stupid idea at home as it will catch your house on fire (I mean putting lit candles on the floor, not the repurposing).
(This is the cutest little Charlie Brown Christmas tree I've ever seen.) use a large branch like this. put in large glass jar with rocks for weight. hang paper hearts, snowflakes, etc from it with twine.
