Often where you purchase Christmas trees, they also trim them for you. The great thing about this is the trimmings are free for the asking. They make great arrangements, wreaths, garlands and, my personal favorite, artificial tree and garland filler! I have a older tree that needed a little help! By cutting and tucking my limbs between the openings making this a great filler for my tree, garland and other arrangements for free!

Tree trimmings used as a garland on a railing.
