With Christmas just a few days away, chances are if you are still searching for decorating ideas, you want quick, cheap, and easy.  Ideas like this ornament tree from Diane at In My Own Style, which uses an empty ribbon spool and a knitting needle to create a base.  Genius!  They take just minutes to assemble, and when the time comes to pack everything away, they are just as quick to take apart.  (This is especially good news if you plan to use a collection of vintage or family heirloom ornaments, since there is no gluing or other potentially damaging process involved!)  [how to make a tabletop ornament tree]
