We like to keep our Christmas Tree up until the New Year. Everything about having a tree within the house is so comforting. The warm scent and the dim lights are hard to let go once the holiday has gone. Like I stated when we got a real tree this year, I wanted to find as many ways as possible to re-use our tree and not let it go to waste. After creating our memento ornament I couldn't help imagining other ways to repurpose our tree. These little gems are so easy and provide a little more of that holiday smell through out the winter months.
What You'll Need:

There is no better feeling than knowing you made good use of your tree's existence!
