How to decorate a real pine-tree branch with an elf for your Christmas door or window shop

  • - Choose a pine-tree branch that will last a long time. Eventually take advice from your florist.
  • - Resize the pine-tree branch according to your needs and door size.
  • - Begin your decoration placing the elf and securing it with little pieces of green florist wire in hidden points.
  • - Continue with the flowers trying to hide them among the pine leaves.
    Use always the green florist wire.

That's easy, isn't it? Even a child can do it. 10 minutes ... and it's ready!

To hang your Christmas decoration: bind fast the end of the pine branch in two or three points with some very long nylon thread pieces and tie them together to the handle of the opposite side by passing them over the door.
