A Green Holiday Tradition

As the countdown to Christmas begins, it's time to start getting in the holiday decorating mood. For those space-challenged apartment dwellers like me, these Christmas tree die-cut wall decals are ideal since they take literally no space. No more watering a dead tree, no more fire hazard, no more vacuuming up pine needles well into April. Finally, a truly green Christmas tree has been created by celebrated artists like Jacob Hashimoto, Kayson & Savage, Phoebe Washburn and Christopher Daniels, among others. These life-size, vinyl trees can be applied directly to the wall by either removing the paper back or simply pinning it — the perfect gift for those who have everything. Are you dying to get your hands on one? You can order them online at Arware Editions.
