I love using natural materials at any time of the year to decorate my home, but I especially love it during the Christmas holiday decorating season.
Here is one example of a small urn that I put together in a very short amount of time. I took photos of the process.
1.Gather from your garden (or local nursery) some cedar branches, huckleberry or boxwood branches along with some decorative ornaments.
2. Fill your urn with water and place the cedar branches inside, arranging them to hang over the edge of your urn.
3. Place about 3 twigs of huckleberry or boxwood (which you can spray paint to add colour or sparkle) among the cedar branches near the back.
4. Place an oversized ornament (or lichen ball as shown) in the centre of the branches to weigh them down to keep them in place.
5. Add other decorative ornaments or ribbons to your arrangement for the finishing touch.
Now wasn’t that easy?
