The holiday season isn't complete without festive decorations and this DIY cardboard christmas tree is a perfect way to get in the spirit.

To start, take some cardboard from around the house or get some from a local store that would otherwise throw it out. Then, cut it into as many differently shaped elongated triangles that you'd like depending on the number of trees you desire. Then, take a utility knife and carefully cut slits into the cardboard cut out wherever you'd like a light to pop through. Take a strand of Christmas lights and push each individual bulb through one of the slits.

Voila! Plug them in and lean them against a wall for a contemporarily shaped Christmas tree that friends will never believe you did yourself. Stats for DIY Cardboard Christmas Trees Trending: Older & Buzzing
