Martha Stewart is late to the party. I used to make Christmas trees out of tumbleweeds when I was in Jr. High. (And I hate to tell you how long ago that was.) I’d find 3 in graduated sizes, get my father to spray paint them white, pile them up and decorate them with cotton balls and home made, paper decorations. Free Christmas tree, instantly. My Home Room thought that was so neat that they took up a collection the following year to buy a “real” tree at a tree lot. LOL
I like it! It is creative and unique.... a Western theme Christmas tree. Although I have only seen tumble weeds in movies... One day, I am going to go out West. Where? No idea but I always wanted to see those red rocks. (as non PC as it sounds but the rocks you use to see in the old cowboy and Indian movies). Your home room had no sense of homemade “style”.

As a child a read about a desert Christmas similar to your story.
Thinking on those simpler times almost makes me weep for what we have lost.
I may have to give that tumble weed tree, and the cotton balls a try!
We made a Christmas Tree out of wild Teasel (thistle) seed cones and chicken wire. I’ll bet those weeds are still coming up in the yard and it’s been almost 40s.
How neat and creative. I hope you continue the creativity.
