Three Easy Steps to an Apartment-Sized, Recession-Proof, Patriotic Christmas Tree

1. Go to the discount grocery store down the street. Buy a potted mini tree for $4.95. Buy a box of mini ornaments for $1.98.

2. Decorate with necklaces, earrings, and leftover campaign buttons.

3. Put it on your windowsill with a snowstorm as a backdrop.

LOL I love how Obama is your tree-topper! Since it's a live one, where are you planning to plant it after Christmas?

VERONICA said...

Adorable! And you have snow!

I think you should replace Obama with a drunken South African angel. Or a live mouse.

yay for creative christmas trees! mine is covered in origami, failed jewellery-making projects, free drink tokens, fake fruit, and weird little dolls and toys.

I LOVE this.

I had to have a really cheap-o Christmas tree this year because my cat is a PSYCHO and would love nothing more than to tear down/eat an expensive tree.

I could do a nice all-jewelry tree. Most expensive tinsel ever!

Don't let the recession get you down. When was the last time you looked at government grants? With the bailout, there is more money than ever. Don't miss out.

The most awesome Christmas tree ever, complete with a different sort of a bright shining star on top.

So is this where I report that my mother has set up seven of our (plastic) Christmas trees? The most we've ever done is fifteen, but she cut down this year to only a few of the themed ones.

We kind of love Christmas.

Very retro, yet forward.

At that size, it's even portable! Take Christmas with you wherever you go.
