Oh Christmas tree....sticker

Holly Crap! I just came across these limited addition artist Xmas Tree decals through WOW and I'm in love. We have been so caught up with Art Basel that we have yet to begin decorating or get a tree. I might forgo one this year and go "green" with a reusable 6" sticker in my teenie apartment instead.

No more watering a dead tree, no more fire hazard, no more vacuuming up pine needles well into April. It�s a truly 'green' Christmas tree: reduce, reuse, recycle this vinyl sticker year after year. Save the trees, save water, save your back from schlepping it all the way home. No religion, no broken ornaments. It�s a Christmas tree for the moderately wealthy and super lazy.

Minter will collaborate with Wallpaper LAB and WOW (Works on Whatever) to create a six-foot die-cut vinyl wall-sticker that addresses the powerful and ubiquitous symbol of the season: The Christmas Tree. Minter styled a small tree with her own eclectic collection of shiny ornaments, lighting and photographing it in a way that merges crisp detail with gauzy soft-focus radiance.
