Here’s the how to for the DIY holiday sprays I made on Home and Family on the Hallmark Channel!
I use these sprays for a lot of things over the holidays. You can put up inexpensive garland and add one of these too each corner and it looks like a million bucks! Also, an oversize one is great by itself instead of a wreath on the front door. One on the bannister at the bottom of the stairs looks great and mini-ones on the tops of packages are pretty fab!
– Greenery – this can be from Christmas tree trimmings, the yard, (the neighbor’s yard!).
– What ever else you find laying around the house that looks festive! In these I used pine cones, green apples, berries, and plastic ornaments.
– Floral Wire
For the lavender and silver group I used some frosted pastel ornaments and two snowflake ornaments.
String floral wire through the ornaments, I used five different shaped and colored ornaments in all.
Lay them on top of your greenery, I used pine here.
I slid the two snow flakes off center behind them….
And just wired them in place – boom, done!
For the Green Apple Spray I started with a pine branch, two apples and two wooden skewers.
Push the skewers into the tops of the apples and arrange them on the pine branch. I also added a little cedar that I took from the garland I had around the door. Lay a few pine cones on top to hide the skewers and wrap floral wire around the group to hold in place.
