A simple way to add some greenery to Christmas or winter decorations is to use branches from an artificial tree – either one you are getting rid of or branches that you can leave off the tree because they are in the back and wouldn’t be seen anyway. They are great to tuck behind a jar candle or snowman on a windowsill or tabletop.
Great tip Cindy. An old artificial tree is a treasure. My husband once took a couple of different small trees he had gotten for pennies and shaped them together and made a huge (about 5 ft.) wreath for outside. They also are great to pull apart and use, especially for outside decorating, because they have wire in them so they are easy to bend and hook or wrap on columns, fences, etc.
We don’t put the bottom row of branches on our fake tree so that we have room for the presents. This would be a great way to use those! -Tawra
