fuck christmas trees

...and not just because it's not even Halloween yet. I've got no space and too many magazines, so this seems like a more practical solution for my personal life concept.

paper flowers

I am very impressed with this paper chandelier, made out of paper and straws by a crafty blogger.
My mother grew up in a small town that celebrates every May 1st with a May Day parade, one that always included a fleet of tiny cyclists. My grandpa taught us how to make paper roses from tissue paper, which we would then wrap around the handlebars of our bicycles with sparkly pipe cleaners.
The creator of the chandelier above was inspired by the one below. If I had any free time I would DIY that shit so hard.
