How to:

Decorating with evergreens for the winter months and Christmas can not only be fun, it's inexpensive and adds a wonderful
scent to your home. An arrangement similar to this, makes a great table centerpiece, fill blank spaces and especially nice on
kitchen counter tops.

This project is very easy and no floral arranging skill is required. Winter greens, such as red or scotch pine, juniper,
dogwood, spruce or any other evergreen is perfect for this project. I even use lavender and rosemary sprigs from the garden
in these projects.

Fill your container with water and begin cutting branches to fit. You don't need to arrange them in any particular order, but I
prefer having the fuller branches, like red pine, scotch pine, etc. along the lower area of the arrangement. I like to begin with
the lower or outside layers first and then fill the center. It really is easy... give it a try.

You can cut small pieces from your trees or your neighbour's if they'll let you, or purchase them at local garden centers. I
love these arrangements and they last for several weeks, unlike fresh cut flowers that seem to droop within hours of bringing
them home.
