As the years have gone on, I've become pickier and pickier about the greenery I keep around. I'm not big on fake flowers or greens...I just love the real, outdoorsy thing.
but I used some hand-me-downs from my mama on the porch...
I started clipping fresh greens to tuck in to the garland...
It was so easy to just tuck the branches right in under the fake garland I had wrapped around the post.
Truly that simple...no extra wiring required.
Adding different types of greens really gave it some pop -- especially these junipers.
It even looks real against nature's best!
It's certainly cold and snowy enough to use the skates and sled now!
