All you have to do, is find some wall space, get a nice sized roll of paper, (however big you want the tree to be) and paint, color or draw a tree! Have the kids participate. It is a fun project for everyone and you also get a chance to bond with your child(ren). Be creative with it. The possibilities are limitless! For instance you can use glitter for garland, put up baby pictures as ornaments, use it as a height/weight cart, stickers, doilies, etc. You get the idea!! On that special day you can even put your gifts underneath.
This is a Christmas idea that involves the whole family and is something that you can pack away and keep forever as memorabilia. The paper tree is something that kids look forward to every year and can be carried on for generations. So, if you're like me and many other Americans, then why don't save some money for your kids this year and put up a paper tree. God bless and have a Merry Christmas!

I love this idea -very clever!
What a great idea I don't have room for a regular tree so I usually just have a 12" tree on top of the stereo. This way I can make a large tree and it won't take up any room.
that reminds me of the garland tree we made once. We made the outline of a tree with garland on the wall and hung our stockings beside it on the door frame. the kids loved decorating it too!
