I love to use natural greens and pinecones to decorate for Christmas. We use an artificial tree so adding the real greenery adds the Christmas touch and smell. Mmmmm!
I asked my dad to keep an eye out for some greens to trim to make a wreath… he came through for me and brought me a few armloads of spruce branches! We have a couple of holly bushes that put out beautiful berries just for Christmas! I love using them in my Christmas decor.
I made a hanging to hang under our mailbox… I would have put it on our door but was afraid the berries would fall off my holly and Miss Priss would get a hold of them.
I filled my two tier wire baskets with greens and added a bow too!
I love the festive touch it adds to our porch (and I love that cute face peering out at Momma!!!)
I stuck sprigs of holly and spruce throughout the house.
I stuck them in my ceramic ware on my hutch… don’t worry, I removed the berry garland after taking these pictures. It was awful!
I love my vintage musicians courtesy of my dear granny along with my vintage postcards!
And here is my natural goodness FAIL. I waited too long after my greenery had been harvested to try to form a wreath and the branches were stiff and brittle… thus giving me this hideous square-ish shape… Yeah, it’s still hanging on my fence- that’s how redneck I am!
I normally use pinecones but couldn’t find my bag of them this year… such a cheap way to decorate! Happy decorating!!!
