What you will need:

-some christmas tree branches
-zip ties or wire or something similar

-damaged christmas tree (OPTIONAL)
-drill (OPTIONAL)
-decorating paper

You know you can get a WHOLE free tree on Dec 26. my family did that once
a day before Christmas, home depot has a couple rejected christmas trees, which are free
my family two years ago a week before Christmas home depot stopped selling Christmas trees and we didn't want to buy one from stu miller because he sells his trees for 150-200 dollars so we drive around where home depot tree dumpster was I jump out of the truck scale the dumpster locate a tree that looked good enough through it down into the truck bed jumped down from the dumpster and drove off that all happened in about 45 sec and the tree was pretty good it was missing half a side but we put that side twards a wall anyway

Just be careful, short branches will dry out very quickly and become a fire hazard.
