Quick, Easy and Inexpensive Christmas Tree Decorating Tip

Christmas decorating is not my thing. I do not enjoy it and I am not very good at it. Besides, I have few Christmas decorations (probably due to the fact that I am not too into decorating).

Last year at this time, we had not even gotten our Christmas tree. A few days before Christmas and the only decorations on the tree were the string of lights, a few plastic balls and some bows. Then I got an idea! All the cards we had received were piling up on the counter (since I had not gotten around to displaying them). I got some clothespins and pinned the cards to the Christmas tree. It had a nice effect and I could be reminded of all of our friends and family each time I looked at the tree and saw the cards.

I had not planned to decorate the tree in this way, but I liked how it turned out so much that this is my plan for this year. As I sit here typing, our tree is up, with lights strung on it. I hope to add a few decorations tomorrow and start pinning on the cards as they arrive in the mail.

Do you have any Christmas decorating tips? How do you keep it simple? Or do you go all out?
