Frugal Fall Decorations: Fresh Greenery Swag

"Celebration of Nature"

I'd like to share my favorite, free, seasonal decoration, which I learned from my mom, and have been doing as long as I can remember:

With a garden clipper or pruner, cut bows of pine, hemlock and red winter berries. Depending on where you live, you use anything that grows nearby and looks pretty to you. Cattails can be nice, for example. Arrange your collection to your liking with all the cut ends facing the same direction. Wrap the cut ends tightly with some wire, fashioning a hook. Hang the decoration on your front door. Very beautiful and a celebration of nature too. You can also use greenery in a similar way to make table centerpieces for your holiday events.


Best wishes for the holidays!
