After debating what to do with my own tree, I thought this post might be helpful to those who have yet to put their trees up. I can guarantee that my in-laws have yet to do this, as they always wait until the very last minute. It's a cute tradition that includes a few drinks, decorating the tree, wrapping presents and talking until the wee hours of the morning... all on Christmas Eve. I can never stay up that late, and the thought of doing all of this on Christmas eve gives me an ulcer.
Now, having said all of that... I recently went to the Christmas Store here in our little town, and took a few photos of inventive tree decorations.

Like most people, December is a month for putting up decorations for us. This is our second year with our new artificial tree, and our second time attempting to decorate it.
I started at the bottom by giving the ugly stand an inexpensive new look.
All I used is some burlap to wrap the stand, then used plastic bags to puff it out, and wrapped it with a simple bow.
