space or a small budget! [or both]
1: Finding a good spot is important. I choose this wall because it has an outlet, and a smoke detector (The smoke detector become the tree topper!)
2: Use tacks to tack corners of the tree into place. I only used 6 tacks on the entire tree.
3: Time for ornaments! [Let the kids make these!] I cut circles out of scrapbook paper, and used a safety pin to attach them to the string of lights.

4: Make a tree topper. I am not totally in love with mine. I will probably experiment with a few more before I choose one
The hole in the star is for the smoke detector!
