Just because you're working up until the actual holiday, doesn't mean you can't add some cheer to your workspace. Whether you're in a real office or just your home office, this little D.I.Y Christmas tree - cut out from an old catalog and held together by paper clips-will do the trick. I got the idea and instructions for this cute little decoration from our friends at Casa Sugar. Mine's a little rougher around the edges than theirs, but it still brings a little smile to my face (and my co-workers!)
Plus, this one took just five minutes to put together and it requires way less maintenance than a real tree. But don't forget to give some TLC to the live evergreen you've got in your living room, too, with these tips and tricks.
