Amazing DIY for Scandinavian ornaments made out of wooden dowels and wood beads. Via The House That Lars Built.
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.
