Ok... tree is a relative term...
There will plenty of time for me to have the sequoia in the living room with that fresh pine smell and the endless boxes of tangled lights and ornaments (with deadly hooks, of course)! But such a glorious tree will also be accompanied by a living arrangement that provides significantly more space than my little one-bedroom apartment.
In the mean time, my little ornament mobile will do just fine! I was originally inspired for this little project here. Her directions are very detailed, although they are very calculated as well. So, in true Ali-fashion, I decided to wing it!
I basically used clear thread and clear thumbtacks to hang the ornaments from the ceiling in front of my window (yes, very technical I know but I'm confident you could pull it off...)
And you know what? Real trees aren't perfectly symmetrical or uniformly either! So I'm perfectly ok with my guesstimating skills!
Although now the rest of my apartment feels like it needs some sprucing up! Perhaps a trip to Marshall's is in order :)
Seasons Greetings everyone! And happy decorating!
