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.
