The wreath will look good if you will combine nuts, dried flowers, herbs, bird’s nest and pine cones as accessories for it. You will create a wreath by laying a strand down and another on top of it to overlap it. You will join them together using a twine and you will overlap it to make a circle. The garland will not require a circle. You can add the natural accessories easy by using a glue gun.

The middle of the wreath is an important place which should be decorated with a mini wreath and a pillar candled into the middle. You can add some color to this accessory using spray. Also, you can use a special white paint to make it look like snow.

Pine cones can be used to create assorted baskets. They will fit well with greenery and fresh citrus and pomegranates colors. These fruits will last for weeks and will add some fresh air and color to your decorations.

Natural ornaments are the best option for your tree and it is recommended to use slices of citrus fruits dried. They can be easy dried on a warm area of your house. You will need to make sure that you won’t let them dry to long if you want to keep their color alive. Nuts and other ornaments can be painted with gold or silver paint to add a glitter to your decoration mix. Another interesting accessory is a garland made of popcorn and cranberry. You will use stale popcorn and a plastic needle to keep cranberries to their original shape. Make the mix interesting by stringing them together.
