A simple tree

A touch of tradition on a shoe string budget.  I decided that I needed to do something special to help get rid of my bah-humbug attitude this year.  At the same time I didn't want to open my tubs of Christmas Decorations.  I went to Crafts Direct where all the Christmas decorations are on sale for 50% off.  I chose a 24" Tree (artificial) for $6 and a glittery gold angel for $2.50. At a different store I found a 50 light string for about $3.  Then I took some old apple sauce and cinnamon to make ornaments that will add a bit of scent to the room.
A Simple Christmas Tree
When the cinnamon ornaments dried enough to work with, I took some normal sewing thread and strung through the holes that I created.  Then I hung them on the tree.  It is plain and immensely simple but it adds that bit of Traditional Christmas.  I see that I have enough space there for my miniature manger scene but that would mean opening those tubs and digging for it.
