Boxwood Table-top Tree

A Boxwood Table top Christmas Tree is an easy decoration to create.  It does require a fair amount of boxwood, a full size block of oasis and a bowl that will hold water.    We began by taping the soaked oasis to the bowl for some added security.   Next we placed 5 boxwood pieces to create the triangular shape of a tree.  On piece at the top and then one on each side of the oasis on the bottom.   Those pieces were our largest and after that we continued poking in boxwood pieces, each one progressively smaller, thus forming  a lovely tree.
Final touches were put on the wreath with ribbons, red ornaments, red birds, peppermint candies and gold bells.   Everyone could choose their own  decorations and many left the tree all green.

In the oasis, these charming tabletop trees will easily last throughout the holiday season.

Love boxwood and would love making this. Thanks for the instructions. I will have to remember this for next year or maybe an Easter tree, who knows! Smiling!

What a great idea! Another idea to tuck away for next Christmas!
