Makeshift Christmas Tree

We don't own a Christmas tree. It's so expensive, we can't afford one. But I found some old pine leaves from a destroyed Christmas tree that was about to be thrown away.

Just like McGyver, I had to think of a way to make these old leaves useful and look like a Christmas tree. Searching around, I found a  trash can, wooden branch like cup holder, and some tubo used for reaching our sinampay in clothesline.
Tying them all together with straw and glue, it stood up somehow.
I wrapped the trash bin with gift wrapper, placed some old Christmas lights and VOILA! a makeshift Christmas tree.


But wait! Call now.... what a great offfa! :D

Merry Christmas! :)

I hope you enjoyed your Christmas! Sana naging meaningful and very happy yung Pasko mo. :D

Advance happy new year too, wag magpaputok, baka maputulan. lol. :P

Anyway, alam mo sa divisoria, mura lang ang Christmas tree. Last year we got a three-foot tree for 60 pesos. Not bad no?
