Check this out. I would be so easy to make this project using a bit of fake Christmas Garland and wine corks or use real grenery or bare wood branches. What a great family project and have each person create decorations using other recycled material. I have previously featured unconsumption.com here but this is one of my favorite ideas. They have a whole series on what to do with wine corks called "It’s wine o’clock (somewhere)".
