This year I'm trying to incorporate as many natural products as possible into my Christmas decor. Here's a quick (and fairly inexpensive) idea for a Christmas Centerpiece. I started out by purchasing three small boxwood bushes that were similar shape and size. I got mine on clearance for $3 each at a local nursery.
I wrapped each plastic, ugly black pot in burlap and ran a red ribbon around the center of each pot. You can use hot glue to secure the burlap and ribbon to the back of the pots.
I made the burlap a little long on top and frayed the edges a bit. Then I covered the dirt with reindeer moss.
I scattered a few shiny, red ornaments here and there to add one more layer of interest.
I dropped mine into my Charles Street Planter and placed on my coffee table in the living room. Beautiful! If I were going to use this as a true centerpiece, I would put down a runner, drop a few ornaments down to the table and add a few votive holders here and there.
As an added bonus, I can easily switch out the ribbon after Christmas to change the look for late winter/early spring. Then I'll have three bushes to add to our landscaping in the spring!
Do you use natural elements in your Christmas decor?
