I've had this idea lately that I've been obssesed with & I'm not quite sure what I want to do. Those car tree air freshners are so cool & cheap that I think they would be awsome to play with. It would look cool if you just had one whole tree covered with a bunch of diff colored ones. Or I've thought about covering them with sparkles & the adding "season's greetings" or something equally cheesy. They have many possibilities. Even just painting them or decoupaging them with something intersting. Sorry-I'm going off, I just realy like thier shape! Just a thought!

there's a cool idea for a stocking shaped like a high heeled boot around here somewhere...perhaps you could miniaturize it. That would be a wicked cool ornament Smiley Hope this helps!

Yeah, the air fresheners are REALLY strong, I wouldn't recommend using real ones.  But you could just get one and use it as a pattern to cut trees out of cardstock.  They're probably look athentic if you used a real air freshener as your pattern.

I'm trying to come up with ways to make not Christmas-y stuff work on my very first tree.  Maybe I'll just take all my littlest trinkets (I'm a pack rat), poke a hole in them, and string 'um up!

I was also thinking of the simple yet classic cranberry-and-popcorn garland.  Just one of those with some white lights probably look very nice.

And finally, for some strange reason, I'm been tossing around the idea of a pirate tree, or at least some of the ornaments.  Pirates are so bright and festive!  Not sure exactly what, maybe gold coins, parrots, a skull and crossbones or two...

ok...this might be a bit high on the lame-o-meter, but I've been gluing hot pink tissue paper on styrofoam stars, with future plans to add glitter and peraps some sequins or something...they're looking pretty hot so far.

I think it's fun to take traditional christmas icons & use cooler prints to update them. For example, a snow man in a pimp hat & lame scarf, santa in leopard skin, a angel in a bustier & stockings? Okay so my idea is starting to sound like christmas on crack, but if you kept their little faces sweet...

hmmmm.

Along the air-freshener line, you could make these cinnamon ornaments http://www.marthastewart.com/page.jhtml?type=content&id=tvs7634, but instead of cutting them out with the usual Christmas-y shapes, use whatever you like.  Cut them into lips (a la the Rolling Stones), or purses, or whatever tickles your fancy.  Fun fur!  Use it as a garland around the tree to vamp it up.

for christmas one year i took polaroids of my housemates/boyfriend/myself. I put red and green colored filters/cellophane over the lense, so the pics turned out green and red. then threaded wire through the top of the polaroid.

i also had some barbies from the mc donalds happy meals and put wire around their necks to hang from the tree.
