Whip up a batch of Homemade Christmas Potpourri in less than two minutes!
Using burlap in your Christmas tree! (add white lights!!)
Could also use rosemary stem. Cut a branch (ours are black walnut) into thin rounds. Drill a hole in the center with a high-speed rotary drill or a regular drill with a small bit. Insert sprigs of greenery (we used dwarf Alberta spruce), and position a cut-out paper name tag in the top of the branch, or tie on with colored twine. And don't forget a star at the top.
Grab hanging baskets now on summer clearance sales! Add a few springs of garland, some battery operated lights, and add some pine cones and holly for this wonderful porch decoration. No need to buy one, make on! This one is $50 - could be made for a fraction of that!
