My friend, Erica, told me I could share her wonderful (and virtually free) tree decorating tip with you that she used this year. I thought her ideas were brilliant, tasteful, cute, and even kinda hip (she's always hip). I love, love, love her Christmas tree this year! So simple: Lots of draped yarn and some cute fabric tied into bows on the branches. A few twinkly lights and a few colorful balls and voila! Awesome Christmas decor. You rock, Erica.
Here's another simple idea we did a few years back when I was a little more in control of how to decorate the tree (this year, the kids took over with colored lights and crazy ornaments... but I'm happy for them.) Its another very simple and virtually free way to decorate your Christmas tree: nostalgic photographs attached with clothespins and hanging gingerbread men and women. We also threw in a few of our sentimental ornaments and some simple lights:Homey. Check out the full post from Christmas '08 here.
