My roommate is allergic to "anything that's green" and, unfortunately that means Christmas Trees, too. I don't really like artificial Christmas Trees, though it hardly seems like Christmas without SOMETHING green in the apartment. I'm looking for alternatives, and here are a couple things I've come up with:
1) A spiffy DIY conical Christmas Lights display, courtesy of Flickr user jeongyun.
2) As long as we're going artificial, we might as well go crazy! Shocking Pink would look nice with our honeycomb walls... (From Urban Outfitters.)
3) A Yarn Wreath, inspired by Constant Gatherer's versions on Etsy.
But seriously folks, I'll probably end up doing some version of this: a
bare branch tree, with all my random ornaments, lights, and a sweet ribbon garland, similar to the one pictured above.
