5 Minute Door Wreath & One Last Christmas Touch!

Leave a comment

December 22, 2015 by Terry

So I was Actually wanting to decorate with fresh greens this Christmas but was late getting around to collecting some.  I began decorating with the faux stuff I already had and ended up running out.  I decided to finally make time and go for a short walk out the back door to get a few branches.

I only wanted a few to fill a wooden tote that I had that didn’t sell at the Market.  After placing three plastic containers filled with water in the tote, I began clipping and arranging the greenery in each container.

The smell of fresh cut greens is wonderful inside and is what our home has been missing this season.  Most everything I have used to decorate is faux due to the fact that we have a kitty …

Anyways … here is my arrangement of greenery after adding a few baubles and large pinecones

It is shown here on our dining table but because it is rather broad I have since moved it to be the coffee table centerpiece.

it really does smell great!

Now all I have to do is remember to keep it watered ;)

With the leftover boughs I decided to create a wreath using an old empty picture frame that I had painted white .

This literally took me 5 minutes to make!

I wired the greens onto the frame, strung some pom pom garland on it and added a Large red bell to the center.  Tied a few Jute bows on the branches and voila!

The nicest part is that it already had a hanger on the frame!

It’s not breathtaking by any means, but it’s cute … in a Charlie Brown sort of way!

Have you been making any last minute touches?

I think I will be right up to the last minute!

I’m off to bake some more butter tarts … I made 3 dozen last week and they seem to have been a hit with my family!  Three dozen sounds like a lot but when they leave the tray 5 at a time they disappear fast!

Smiles!
