I like nothing better than to use natural greens from my gardens or the woods surrounding our home for decorating purposes, so here’s a short post on a simple DIY Christmas decoration using some of mother earth’s greenery.
For this project I used Boxwood sprigs, but I imagine you could use other greens too.
I bought a pack of florist foam at Wal-mart for a few dollars. (the kind that can be made wet)
I soaked a piece in water, completely submerged for five minutes or so, then set it on a plate.
I cut the corners of the foam after I took the picture, so it would have more of a cone shape.
Next, I stuck the boxwood sprigs in, close enough together so you can’t see the foam.
I wanted to add a wintery look so I sprayed the greenery with an adhesive and sprinkled fake snow on it. The fake snow comes from Pat Catans. I love using it for wintery decorations… it looks very authentic!
I hope you are all enjoying this holiday season & have a blessed weekend!
