Affordable Christmas Tree {$50 TOTAL}

I love decorating a Christmas tree because it is like a giant craft project that starts as a blank canvas and can be ANYTHING. I wanted to challenge myself this year by making a completely affordable tree from start to finish that used things I had on hand and handmade ornaments. Now friends, when I say that this tree was $50 total- that is INCLUDING the tree itself!!
