For a few years now, we’ve had an artificial Christmas tree. There are positives and negatives about it. Some positives: No mess to clean, easy to pack and store away for next year, money-saver, can come pre-lit, available in different colors and shapes! The negatives: No fresh scent of Christmas.
Yeah, it’s a big deal. I find myself buying a TON of candles, but even then it’s not the real thing. An easy solution is to introduce evergreens in small doses throughout your home. Like this super simple hanging evergreen bouquet!
- Assortment of winter greenery (which you can find at Home Depot or a local florist shop)
- Floral wire
- Wire cutters
- Begin by arranging your greens as you would with a bouquet of flowers. Make sure to disperse them evenly throughout.
- Once you like your arrangement, simply begin attaching them using floral wire until they feel secured together.
- Attach a string of wire from one end of the bouquet to the other and simply hang!
It’s that easy you guys! It’s about creativity and really what you think looks pretty. And when you’re working with just greenery, you really can’t go wrong! Best part is, it smells amazing! Feel free to sit the stems in water overnight to keep them fresh and long lasting. Simply dry the stems and hang them back up again!
Stay tuned! Tomorrow I have another lovely option for bringing in fresh greens into your home this season.
