If you have evergreen shrubs, magnolias, pine trees, Eastern red cedar or other conifer plants, you can take cuttings, use a pre-formed frame or even a coat hanger and make some unique decorations.
The key when cutting greenery from the landscape is to cut it in such a way that your plants don’t look butchered or damaged. You can make judicious cuts here and there, without anyone noticing.
Cut, fresh greenery usually lasts about two weeks inside the home before it dries out and starts to shed. If you use it to decorate outdoors, it will last much longer. Indoor heat is extremely drying.
