One of the benefits of getting a real tree every year is that you will likely have some branches leftover from trimming.  My husband always trims it before we bring it in and then saves those clippings for me to “do something with”.  You can also ask at the lot where you buy your tree for extra clippings, they will usually just give them to you at no charge.  In addition to my tree, I usually buy at least one fresh garland for decorating as well.  Now is the perfect time to bring them indoors, if you bring them in too early they will wilt.

Here are five inspiring last minute ways to decorate with fresh greenery.  Be sure to read through to the end of this post for a Paypal Cash Giveaway that some of my blogging friends are hosting.  I don’t know anyone who couldn’t use some extra money at this time of year.
