2. Ornament Trees
Cut flowers often come with a hefty environmental footprint. Those beautiful blooms use tons of pesticides and many gallons of water to grow, and they’re shipped from all over the world. With a little crafty know-how, you can fill your vases with a much smaller footprint.
Don’t put away your Christmas ornaments yet! Head out to the backyard or the nearest park and collect some fallen branches in different sizes. You can arrange them in pretty vases and hang some sparkly ornaments from the ends to create eye-catching centerpieces without a cut flower in sight!
