If you guys haven't checked out the CB2 blog yet, you're really missing out. Take a look at this great idea!
Repurpose a tall ladder—and save a tree!
1. wood ladder
2. light strands
1. It’s going to create drama, so position the ladder where it can be the center of attention.
2. Test light strands then weave them around and through the ladder’s steps and sides.
3. Hang ornaments and top as desired—careful not to overweight any one strand of lights or throw off the ladder’s balance.
hint: for safety reasons, think twice about your roommates—cats, small children—before installing.
