Christmas cuttings. Last year, I created these potted pine cuttings as an alternative to a traditional Christmas tree. I loved having their fresh pine scent — and a little reminder of Christmas — on the coffee table after the holidays. This project was easy to create. First, I picked out a mix of vintage containers to use as vessels. I opted for a mix of vintage mason jars, a metal measuring cup, and a ceramic marmalade jar. My local florist added a little floral foam to the base of each vessel and created a reservoir for the cuttings. I added the cuttings, sticking the branches into the floral foam. I added potting soil around the base of the cuttings to fill the jars, then put a layer of wood chips on top for a final woodsy touch. To care for these cuttings, water them every day (especially if your home has the heat going strong). With the reservoir and floral foam, these cuttings lasted for almost two months. Tip: One little cutting planted in a jar can look a little Charlie Brown Christmas. But I think a grouping of these cuttings in a mix of favorite vessels feels complete. It's a true alternative to a cut tree that can sit on your table.
Bring in the woods with potted tree cuttings. Cluster a group of vintage containers and fill them with fresh tree cuttings for a display that will last for months when cared for properly.Get the full instructions here
Garden IndoorsA few evergreen saplings potted in various containers are perfectly festive and a green option to the traditional cut tree. Place your saplings in a cool spot while they're indoors, then plant them in the backyard later or them give to a friend with land to give back a little after the holidays have past.For a temporary display, pot cut evergreen branches to serve as mini Christmas trees through the holidays.See how to create these mini Christmas trees
7e. Clean up needles. Do as much as you can with the broom and dustpan so as not to clog up the vacuum. Then, when everything else is put away, give the floor a good vacuuming.
Discovery through the senses is an important experience for children, as is connecting with the earth around them. Let your children get their hands dirty for once and pick out a few holiday plants for them to pot. This is a fun, hands-on, slightly messy project that results in beautiful accents for rustic holiday homes.More: Create a Dream Tree for Fall

Better yet, create the look of miniature trees in country-inspired planters with boughs from the garden (or tree lot). The mix shown here has a little of everything, from crock to watering can to simple pottery, and arrangements like these can be used inside or set outside in a protected area.
