I wanted the smell of a fresh pine tree in our home for Christmas but I didn't want the fires hazard of a real tree. Real trees don't last long in California so we have a fake Christmas tree.
In order to get that Christmas tree smell... I purchased this fresh wreath for $7. The red bow on it was completely crushed and dirty. So I used burlap ribbon to make a pretty bow and wrapped some ribbon around the wreath. I used a piece of twine to tie/hang it from a mirror. Then I hung five small gold glass ball ornaments from it for a touch of sparkle and shine.
This was a simple way to incorporate fresh pine into our Christmas decor and it looks and smells wonderful.
