I decorated my tree this weekend, which is usually done the weekend after Thanksgiving. Finding the energy to embrace the season has been difficult at best.
I blame the lack of snow.
We’ve had nice weather this year although it’s not really conducive to having Christmas spirit.
This year we have a toddler coming to visit and a crazy kitten who lives here. This means that my normal Christmas tree, covered in fragile glass bulbs will be problematic. So, we decided to do something different this year.
My wonderful hubby built this tree:
How do you decorate a tree that doesn’t have “branches” that will hold things at different levels? How to I keep the lights and ribbon in place without that? Whose idea was this anyway?
The answer: staple gun.
This was hubby’s idea and it did work. I managed to get the lights and ornaments to stay. I even pulled out the push pins to help.
Here is a final picture, complete with said kitten at the base:
