Handy Helpers: A Christmas Deco Must-Have!
There is a really random item packed up with my holiday decorations. It’s one that I can’t live without. Let me explain.
I really hate the tree fluffing. It’s my least favorite part. I’m talking about the art of making an artificial tree look a little more full and not storage-worn. It was the most dreaded chore of decorating because I’d get all scratched from digging into the branches, then finally I realized, “Dummy, use gloves.” So I have these packed in the box with one of our trees. It really helps to be able to get in there and work, but still be able to protect your hands. It’s also good to wear long sleeves.
Maybe you’ve already put up your decorations this year, but I bet a lot of people will be doing it today since December 1st falls on a Saturday. This day used to be my gold standard. I would put up deco on December 1st and take it down on January 6th (Epiphany). If you’ll be decorating today, I hope this tip comes in handy.
So moral of the story…fluff your deco, and wear gloves!
