Natural Holiday Decorations

Today on Gardening in a Minute: natural holiday

Many of us decorate our homes for the holidays, and
what’s more festive than using plants and other natural

The best greenery for indoor decorations comes from
pines, firs, and cedars. Bring the family together one
evening to make door swags and wreaths from branches.
Decorate your creations with acorns, holly berries, and
pine cones.

Instead of using traditional tree ornaments like colored
glass balls, gather seed pods and seed balls from sweet
gum, magnolia, and sycamore trees, and paint them silver,
gold, and other metallic colors.

To spice up tables for holiday family meals, use
branches, berries, and cones as focal points.

Your efforts can not only warm up your home, they can
make great gifts, too!
