LAST MINUTE Christmas Tree Idea!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Finally came up for some air and noticed an extreme lack of Christmas Decor ?
Fix it by going old-school with this Throw back to Charlie Brown’s ( sad )Christmas Tree.

  1. grab some scissors and go for a walk;
  2. find an evergreen with nice branches low to the ground and cut off a branch
  3. thank the tree for contributing breathable oxygen!
  4. Take the branch back
  5. plop it into a vase or planter
  6. Lastly, add a red Christmas ornament to finish off the “tree”.

Now you’re festive, culturally relevant, and ironic all at once!
