5. DIY BLANK CHRISTMAS DECORATION

Although many love the look and smell of a real Christmas tree, having one at your home is not always practical. Many people choose artificial trees instead. Just because your tree is artificial does not mean that you can not smell the natural tree. Our next picker contains corks that smelled of a tree smell and were then hung in the tree. You could have a cork or make it in a cute snowman design like this.
