I looked high and low for a pencil tree that I liked (and that the girls liked too) We've found nothing we can agree on. I thought I'd be ok without one but as I wrap presents there is no place to put them that seems right. After thinking about it I came up with this idea. Its two sparkly garlands, and green felt. Its attached to the wall with clear push pins. Which I don't recommend if you have small kiddies at home. The ornaments are mirrored music notes and are hanging from the pushpins and I chose to use ones I don't care about, because if the cats knock them off and they get broken I haven't lost anything.
Lastly, I want to leave you with a tip. I wanted my house to look ready for Christmas and not just like I threw some things together. I did this by wrapping all my pictures with wrapping paper and adding a glittery bow. It makes your everyday house look like a Santa Workshop. I got the bows to stick by hot gluing them onto the wrapping paper. I chose wrapping paper that matched the colors of the room so it felt like it was suppose to be there.
