Cardboard Christmas trees
As a big fan of cardboard I was really happy to see JULMYS Christmas tree by Ikea. It is not the most beautiful design in my opinion, and choice of color is also not my cup of tea, but I loved the idea. We never spend the holidays at home, so we rarely do any holiday decoration. In fact,the year before last was the first for one for us. With baby I being only a week old at Christmas, we were unable to travel, so we had Christmas brought to us by granny and grandpa.
Last year we are back to our normal selves, packing up our bags, presents and saying bye, bye to Budapest for a while. But, with kids in the house, it is a little bit weird not to do any Christmas preparations, because lets face it…this Christmas craze starts earlier and earlier every year. So we got ourselves a Christmas tree, and it was cardboard!
Krearton Cardboard Christmas tree is exactly what we needed!
It is only two 70 x 62 cm corrugated cardboard pieces and a circular stand. Simple design, INCLUDING decoration you can really use in various ways. For me cardboard is the best in its natural color, so I will probably let P only scribble on decoration, but possibilities are endless. We used a super cheap STRÅLA light chain with 10 bulbs which is battery operated and LED, no fear o overheating.
Isn’t this tree just perfect?
And now it is available in white too. I might need to invest in another one this year. I love natural cardboard, but this white one is so fancy:)
Krearton is a pretty new brand and product they design are fantastic. Collection also includes Mini Christmas trees (also available in 3-packs too, with the addition of a roll of Washi Tape to decorate).
And the biggest and most amazing tree is this puzzle like build up tree:
