Last weekend we went to a Christmas Tree farm and bought a tree. While we were there I picked up a bunch of stray pine tree branches and thought I might be able to use them in my Christmas decorating. They have been sitting in a pile on our front stoop since Saturday, and yesterday evening, I got to work with them. Believe it or not I had not worked with fresh pine before, so I was just totally winging it, but I am happy with what I came up with. It was remarkably simple. All I had to do was cut the branches up. This stuff is completely amateur, but it turned out pretty well. I made some pretty sprays to hang on our front stoop, but have not gotten outside to take pictures of where we hung them yet. But here are the things I did with the pine in the house.
I also filled in my stairway garland with some fresh branches. I will show you the sprays I made for the outside in another post. Have you decorated using fresh pine? I would love to see how you used it!
My daughter and I are going to Pittsburgh for our annual holiday shopping trip on Saturday! We are going to shop till we drop! Enjoy your weekend, whatever you do!
