One year when I was young (maybe 8 or 9?) my mom sprayed a cholla cactus skeleton gold and it was our Christmas tree, I liked it. Cholla looks like this, in case people don't know:
Me and mom live together these days, and Christmas trees
are not something we have the urge for, but we like weird pretty things. This year mom wanted a thing to hang above where she lays to exercise, there is a heater register there, and I painted it for her, so it's at least not as rusty, but it is still boring to look at. I was working at the property one day, cut a little volunteer tree in a bad spot, brought it home, got creative with the printer, scissors and thread... and now this is above the exercise space.
We are claiming it as Christmas tree this year. Last year's "tree" was probably our weirdest, definitely not compostable, but made of recycled stuff:
So this year's thing is pretty close to normalcy for us!
