As we shut down our gardens for a well-deserved rest, those empty containers can be revitalized for the colder season. Trimmings from shrubs such as Redosier Dogwood, Corkscrew Hazelnut and the many Willow varieties can make a very pleasing “Wild Crafted” decoration. Thin Birch logs or twigs offer a great framework for you to add Callicarpa berries, Holly greens and even dried Hydrangea blossoms to enhance your outdoor living space. Evergreen boughs from your fall pruning schedule can be used as filler, many which will last for the entire season. Festive bows, little solar powered twinkle lights and perhaps special ornaments will finish this easy DIY project.
