A Christmas Tree Idea For Small Areas

Here is a great idea for a small space. it is creative and actually rather cool. Using cut timber from a tree in fall branches are attached to a wall. Now, you could just attach to a 2×4 like a trunk of a tree and screwed at the top with a simple bracket into the wall. A strand of white lights was plugged in and run from branch to branch. Ornaments are hung from the wood with little picture hanging nails. The light cord is allowed to show and not kept tidy or hidden as part of the design. But, you could be as neat as you like. Little items can be set on top of the timber. Can be made from floor to ceiling and can be made to make a big impact. The wood could even be painted a Christmas tree green or hot pink – thats up to you.

Add some little fall time leaves to the base and then finish it with a fall colored tea candle. For long term use you might want to seal with polyurethane.

Dawn Kills Fleas

Dogs, carpet, drapes, bedding, clothes in closets – literally everything that was fabric got sprayed. We had minimal problems with fleas so it had to have helped. Neighbors had a horrific time with them and their dogs always had visible bites.
