Bed sheet tree skirt and cardboard box platform

To learn more about the tree and to check out some of the decorations up close, click on any box in the image at left. 


Small trees might seem weeny when you're eyeing them in the store or tree lot, but they're cheap and don't take up all that much space -- characteristics that any square-footage challenged, budget-minded quasi-adult is sure to appreciate. 
Small trees also have another advantage over their more impressively-sized brethren: you need a lot fewer ornaments to fill them out. Still, there's something pathetic about a tree that's so short you're in danger of trampling it. To give my midget tree a little more height, therefore, I propped it up on a cardboard box. Meanwhile, the humble bed sheet offers so much more decorating potential than just its intended purpose of covering a mattress -- it can be transformed into curtains, pillowcases, tablecloths or in this case, a no-sew tree skirt that does a dandy job of hiding both the box and the ugly plastic tree stand.

keep moseying on the tour...
