Pick Up Some Pine

Having a real Christmas tree in your home for the holidays is always a joy! The fresh smell and fluffy look create that signature cozy Christmas feel. But, having a real tree also means there will be pine needles falling on your floor all the time. Picking up these tiny little needles can be difficult, but now you can use duck tape to clean up the mess in seconds. The sticky tape acts like a powerful little suction cup for each and every needle!
