Cheap and Chic: Leftover Trimmings

We all have something left over from our yards - trimmings and whatever we've clipped that seemed dead.  Well, we can make a style statement with these trimmings by bundling them and placing them on out porch, by our front door, on the fireplace hearth or even, in smaller bundles, on our Thanksgiving  tables.

This design concept dates back to pilgrim times when homes were decorated with pine boughs to brighten spirits during the dark days of winter.  Found objects often make the best art.
