DIY modern perforated christmas trees...uses simple paper mache cones found at the craft store...drill a few holes (sand them a bit as needed) and spray paint white. Set a LED tealight (battery operated) under the cone for the lit up effect! Looks just like those expensive ceramic ones I saw somewhere but CHEAPER! :)

To make Bay Leaf Trees all you need is: one large container of dried bay leaves (big box is $3 mol @ Sam's Club) Aleen’s Tacky Line Roll paper mache cones or poster board formed into cones. Start at bottom and overlap leaves, working around the tree. A little Epsom salt poured in a plate makes snow for the trees to stand in. These are rustic and smell nice, could leave them out all year.
