There are always broken branches leftover when people buy trees and often, they are just discarded. If you are crafty you can take these branches home and glue them into festive wreaths for the doors and windows. You can also tie ribbons on groups of branches and place them on tables, the mantelpiece, in vases on shelves and all around the house. They will look very cheerful and fill the house with the wonderful scent of Christmas trees all for next to nothing.
