Tinsel is not very popular anymore. When I was a kid, everyone's tree had tinsel and it was sold in hugh displays in the stores. Now the drug store sets out a few boxes at most!
My family used to decorate with tinsel all the time, it was the look of the '80s! It's still nice though I haven't ever bought it for my tree.
so many ideas for Christmas.. yeyyy!

It is really hard to get off artificial trees. I would only recomend it for real trees. I have heard of people putting it around cloth napkins and making a loose knot for sort of a napkin ring. I bet it would make a dinner table really festive. I haven't done it myself.
