We bought a potted Norfolk pine and some tiny, little ornaments to make a tree for her room. It's also her birthday today, so we dubbed it the Birthday/Christmas tree.
Once all the ornaments were on I thought it was still a little bare. I'd bought some garland, but it was too heavy for the branches (poor little thing was slumping), so I scoured the house looking for something else to use. It's not so easy to get crafty when it's someone else's house. But I found some tan coloured fabric that she didn't want, roughly cut long, thin strips, and tied them into bows. I was stumped on how I was going to attach them though. I wanted them to sit on the branch as if they'd been tied there, not dangle like an ornament.
I couldn't find twist ties, twine, or even staples. Tom thought there might be a glue gun in the workshop so I sent him off to find it. There was one - still in the package - so Christmas was saved! Okay, that's overly-dramatic, but I did get the bows attached and they aren't likely to fall off.
I found a cleaning cloth that look appropriately "country" and wrapped it around the pot as a tree skirt.
I'm liking this little guy. Kind of want one for myself now.
