‘Tis the season to be frugal, but if you’re in the market for an artificial pine, go out on a limb and buy this recycled cardboard Alpine Tree, $28 from Cardboard Safari.
It’s freshly laser-cut from 100% recycled cardboard, an environmentally-friendly and non-toxic material, unlike the plastic used on many fake yule trees. It can be decorated with paint, glitter or light-weight balls or left minimal for the ultra modern green home. They come in native brown or white with a radial design that can be assembled as either a full 360-degree tree or a more compact, 180-degree wall-hugging piece.
If the tree isn’t enough to brighten your winter wonderland, perhaps these other cardboard adornments will do the trick.
The wreath, snowflake trees, and moose and deer are also clever cut-outs from Cardboard Safari. The paper trophies are great gift ideas for Sarah Palin and her fellow hunters. Who is Sarah Palin, you ask? My, they forget so soon.
