decorate with mini trees through out the house to feel the light and joy from the Christmas tree in every room of the house. Can be simple, or used for a different theme in every room. - my aunt Linda did this. How the holidays make me miss her.
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!
