my scandinavian home: Pretty Christmas: moss and boxwood

Pretty Christmas: moss and boxwood

Thursday, 6 December 2012

There's nothing like bringing in a little boxwood and moss into the home at Christmas. Last night I had a play around with some wire and moss and realised just how tricky some of the beautiful decorations you see on Pinterest can be, despite looking so simple! By the time I finished there was more moss on the table and floor than om my wreath! So I have borrowed some DIY tips from  Martha Stewart Living which have been expertly executed by Ashley Ann in the two images below. How pretty?

This year I love the more simple wreaths, nothing fancy, just a little greenery and a pretty white candle.

I'm going to dash off quickly today as it's actually my birthday :) No one is more excited than my four year old who thinks there's going to be a full on party when she gets back from nursery, so I have to quickly rustle up a cake and some friends, what a lovely excuse! :)

Have a lovely day.
