Decorating for the holidays doesn't have to be difficult or expensive. Pull out last year's Christmas paper and follow these simple steps for a festive tree you can display in any room in the house!  This Pretty Papers Christmas Tree can be made using leftover wrapping paper or colorful Christmas-themed scrapbook paper.  This is a great tree to have on display for those who live in small spaces and a fun way to use up all that leftover wrapping paper!
