This time of year is by far my favorite time of year. I love the concept of bringing deep greenery into the home. Although I could have plants, they never seem to survive, but during Christmas time, I know I can count on a fragrant tree that will last until it’s time to take it down.
Last year we were blessed to live in a loft in downtown San Diego. Tall ceilings and great big windows encouraged us to buy the biggest Christmas tree I’ve ever had. It was so amazing and we really loved it. But this year, we won’t be spending Christmas at home, but will be visiting family. Therefore, we opted for a simple, petite little Christmas tree, and I find it to be so perfect. Because our home is smaller than our previous place, I really got into the concept of Christmas decorations and making our place feel cozy. The weather has also changed from very humid to rainy and cloudy, with temperatures in the low 60’s.
After finding our Christmas tree, I found small pine branch bouquets from Whole Foods and decided to turn them into wreaths.
1. 8-12 Bendable pine branches (I used about 2-3 branches per wreath.)
3. Green floral wire
