I tried this idea to cover my tree’s bald top:
I found four giant white bows at Zeller’s marked down to 87 cents each. I saw potential in them and accordingly nabbed them. For the tree topper I twist tied three of them together and just sat them on top like a hat.
I think it looks like a giant bow. D took one look at it and said, “Why’d you put a bunch of material on top of the tree? You’re supposed to put an angel or a star up there.” P didn’t really notice and didn’t seem to care too much. DA hasn’t seen it yet as far as I know; he’s still sleeping from working the evening shift. I thought it kind of looked modern and I liked the fact that I didn’t have to purchase anything extra. I can easily take this apart and use the bows for other purposes if I want to.
D also mentioned that trees are supposed to have skirts under them. Guess he did actually notice a few things while doing all that window shopping as a toddler! I find tree skirts pretty but also kind of expensive. I thought that I could repurpose an old tablecloth from my former dining room table to do double duty.
Works for me. There will be a few gifts going down there anyways so it doesn’t have to be perfect.
