tree Do you do the same decorating every year?

I just realized that I was getting in a rut doing the same decorating, so I started decorating yesterday and it's taking longer because I'm changing some things. Now every year I do my tree differently but I'm talking about other decorations, lights inside, lights outside, garland placement and etc.

I have two small wall trees and I had baskets on the bottom of them so it would look like they had a trunk and the trunk was sitting in the baskets. So I put them up yesterday and got to thinking it's time for a change. So I found a small box shaped exactly like I wanted it and I wrapped it in gold shiny paper and put small ornaments on each side to hid my tape and use the box as a base for my tree that has the colors gold and copper. oh I just had an idea, I should look for copper colored pennies to glue to the box, that would look neat. If my pennies are to discolored, I can clean them and make them shine with ketchup.

Then I had a small teal colored drawstring bag that sparkles, so I put it on the base of my other wall tree so it looks like a regular tree with the base wrapped in a bag. This tree I'm doing in the colors teal and white so the bag is perfect.

Busy busy busy and I got to get busy now, decorating makes the house a wreck.
