No Room For a Christmas Tree? Work with What You've Got!

I've posted many things about my current apartment and the little projects we've been doing to spruce up our small space. In the past I've posted about painting the kitchen and how we made old postcards into art.

This winter we realized that our lovely but tight NYC abode wasn't going to have enough room for a Christmas tree. So what did we do? Improvise!

We turned our spiral staircase into a modern day Christmas tree! Although, I guess it's more of a Festivus Pole.

We took some white lights, garland that we got for $2.99 at RiteAid and some ornaments that I've been hoarding for a few years and voila! Instance holiday cheer.

Don't you think the gifts would look nice neatly tucked under the stairs?
