I wanted to decorate my room for Christmas, but my room was a mess like many other people’s.  My mom went to Target got a small white wire Christmas tree for me at the Dollar Spot.  Even though the tree was small, I didn’t know where I could put it in my room.

After seeing my mess, my mom told me to, “clean up!” My dresser was especially messy, but that was the only place for the Christmas tree.  While I was cleaning, I had an idea: I would place all my small accessories on the tree. Now it is decorated with bracelets, barrettes, hair clips, earrings, bobby pins, cell phone charms, and even my pink pocket knife. You could really put anything on the tree you would like. The best part is that now my room is clean, my dresser is decorated for Christmas… and I can find all of my accessories!
