Real greens are so easy to come by this time of year, so why not add them to your mailbox instead of the storebought variety which everyone does. All you need are some Christmas tree branches that you can easily find at the tree lots for free. Gather those up, along with some magnolia, cedar or cypress to add variety (or really anything in your yard like boxwood, holly and nandina), a couple of pinecones, some shiny gold balls, and leftover ribbon. Doesn’t have to be fancy, just see what you have laying around. Some floral wire helps to hold it all together.
Come back on Monday and I’ll show you my livingroom with the tree and mantel. I’m participating in BooMama’s Christmas tour too, along with Hooked on Holiday Houses, so be sure to get over there and check out everyone else’s Christmas decor. It’s sure to be inspiring! And I’m also going to host a Christmas tour on MY blog too on Monday, so come back and add your link to Mr. Linky here. Don’t forget to add a link from your blog back to my post so all of your readers can come over for the tour too. It’s going to be a Christmas extravaganza!
