Creating a "designer" Christmas tree!

I learned a neat little trick over the Thanksgiving weekend I thought I would share with you!

If you have an artificial tree spend a few extra minutes "wrapping" the tree in your lights. Start from the inside and work your way out, and back in. (This hides the cords.)

If it is done WELL it your tree will have:

1.) The depth it normally lacks.

2.) If your lights are "indoor approved" and you love the way the tree looks, you don't have to take the lights off when the season is over! Simply put your tree in storage AS IS and it will stay that way for many, many Christmases to come.

3.) No tangled lights, no major "fluffing" required

4.) Best of all: no having to remember how you did it last year when you just "LOVED" the way the tree looked!

(The pics were taken from the Lowe's website. ))

I hope this is a useful tip for ya'll, because it MORE than "Works for Me"!

One other suggestion: Put an old sheet over your tree to keep it dust-free in storage. It's a real -bear- to dust a full-sized Christmas tree! ;- )

P.S. The turnip greens were -awesome- this year. One day, you'll come to know and love them, especially with a bit of pepper sauce or chow-chow.
