I have been accused of being a bit of a scrooge. I don’t chomp at the bit to decorate for Christmas, rearranging my house to find a spot for a giant tree always seems a bit odd. Last year, I came really close to not putting it up at all. It just seems like an awful lot of work if you aren’t entertaining for the holidays. I collected images of alternative Christmas decor that I might be able to get on board with.
This is maybe a bit too cute and I don't have a clue how all that stuff would get stuck to the wall. Thankfully, there aren't enough do-dads at my house to make this one. I like this option, maybe a bit refined, for a small apartment.
This photo was all over design blogs last holiday season. It would be fun to incorporate this idea into a party activity where everyone writes a joke, a holiday wish, a wish for the new year, whatever and then create this tree out of the post-its. This is about as close to holiday crafty as I can get.
I am definitely doing something like this for cards this year. I am rotten at sending Christmas cards, but love receiving them!
The trend of hanging words on the wall is totally over done, but I kind of like this. It could be done with letters from Hobby Lobby for relatively cheap.
Everything about this photo is great. I bet this house is adorable at all times of the year. I have been thinking I need to get some little junipers for the urns on our front porch.
When it is all said and done, I will get in the Christmas spirit and put up a tree. Mostly because these are on my Christmas list: http://www.franklloydwright.com/browse.cfm/2,252.html
