Plussing the tree...

Christmas: I'm a sucker for the nostalgia, the sentimentality, the childhood memories. I'm one of those decorate-early/leave-the-tree-up-late people. I've always wanted to put up a tree the day after Thanksgiving. Unfortunately, the rest of my family does not share this early enthusiasm. 

Last year, in the midst of post-holiday clearance sales, they bought me a little artificial tree for my office. It was a perfect idea! I could put it up as early as I wanted, and the big family tree downstairs could wait until the rest of the crew was ready. 

I put up my tree shortly after Thanksgiving, but I forgot that I would need special decorations. Small ones. 

Then, it hit me! 

PINS. This was quite the stroke of genius for me- it was a perfect solution. I have piles and bins and lanyards of pins, and I'm always trying to find something fun to do with them. By myself. (The sad life of a pin trader living far from WDW...) 

They are the ideal size for my tree, I can switch them up at will, and I get to actually look at them brightening my tree all day long!

How do you get your WDW fix for the holidays? Tell us about it in the comments...

  1. WOW! This is such a clever and MAGICAL idea!! What a great way to bring some Disney love to Christmas. I, too, love my pins but wish there were more way to enjoy them throughout the year, when I'm not at Disney. Thanks for sharing your inspiration!
