Just when I think I’ve seen every possible variation on cone trees, someone surprises me with something new and different!  These festive little evergreens by Kim at Sand and Sisal were inspired by some similar trees that Pottery Barn had this season, but the DIY version cost a heck of a lot less.  I love their understated, natural look.  If you have a rustic or woodsy feel to your decor, you could even leave them out all year ’round!  [how to make bay leaf trees]
