You could just go for a traditional Christmas tree this year. But if you're too creative, too cheap, too lazy, or too close to the equator for a real tree, there are plenty of creative DIY Christmas trees that will save you money and time or give you a unique way to celebrate the holidays.

There are plenty of brilliant Christmas tree ideas out there, so if you've got one you'd like to share or that you've made yourself, we'd love to see it added to this list. You can also upvote your favorite idea and give it a try!
