I have this weird duplicity to my design tastes.  Sometimes I find myself being drawn to or creating things that are bold and bright and outrageous, but when it comes to decorating my house, I prefer more understated, sophisticated projects.  While many Christmas projects that catch my eye fall into the first category, I would say that the latter is true of these simple, elegant potpourri Christmas trees by Carolyn of Carolyn’s Homework.  They would look right at home on my front entry table!  [how to make potpourri Christmas trees]

Project estimate:

  • Foam cone, $1 and up
  • Craft glue or glue gun, on hand
  • Potpourri, $1 and up
  • Corrugated cardboard, on hand
