One of the things I did while back in the woods was to cut a bunch of pine branches to use for for Christmas decorating. I love the smell of real pine and the look of the real wreaths, garland and swags but, if you buy the real stuff already made up, it costs a small fortune.
So, I decided to take advantage of the bounty of pine and evergreen available to me and bring a bunch home!
When my dad cut down our Christmas tree, there were many branches he had to cut off first so, I gathered those up to take home.
I sure wish there was such a thing as “smell screen” settings because the smell of this pine and evergreen is beyond amazing!
I also gathered some evergreen branches and a bit of cedar. And these will be used throughout the house for decorating.
This year I am keeping it simple and natural. I don’t plan to do any major glitzy decorating. But I think fresh, natural and simple will be pretty.
Not too mention, it is very thrifty!
