If you're one of those people who like to have a little Christmas cheer in every room of the house, Melanie’s simple cardboard trees give off the soft, festive glow without the maintenance of a real tree
How to recreate the look: Supplies: -- cardboard (Melanie used cardboard from a display board that would be used for school projects) -- razor blade -- small string lights
Use the razor to cut out cardboard triangles in various sizes. Punch little holes through the triangle with a screwdriver, scissors or a drill. Pop the lights through the backside of the cardboard and light up.
