Boxwood Tree

Our church offered a boxwood workshop to make holiday decorations.  I chose to make a Christmas tree (the other options were wreaths and centerpieces).

One of the women has a large property with boxwoods, so she trims them once a year before the holidays and brings in the trimmings for the sanctuary wreaths and the boxwood workshop.

I started with a square, plastic dish with a block of moist floral foam.  After two hours of picking through boxwood, trimming pieces, and arranging them in the foam I ended up with a tree!

I chose the Santa pick from a box of decorations supplied and one of the ladies helped me make a big bow for the top.  I'm proud of my creation!

It's the perfect Christmas addition to our kitchen table.
