Since I work in the Schulz Graphic Novel Library (Charles Schulz drew Peanuts and Charlie Brown and all that fun), I decided to make a REAL Charlie Brown tree this year. My boyfriend's dad chainsawed the butt off the tree he got today in Vermont and I KNEW we could use it for something.



We used a drill press to make some holes for boughs we had trimmed off, you could just carve a hole with a knife. Insert a little branch + one red ornament (hopefully pathetically scratched). We packed snow around the tree butt base to keep the branch alive longer.



And a little sunset:
