materials

  • Basket (Pictured: Vintage Longaberger wall basket, for similar styles, visit etsy.com or ebay.com)

  • Pine boughs

  • Decorative snow spray (Pictured: Design Master Sno Blast decorating snow spray, $10, amazon.com)

  • Faux birds (Pictured: Garden flying birds, 3", $15 for 12; and clipon birds, 4¾", $15 for 12, jamaligarden.com)

steps

  1. Fill a wall basket with boughs of white pine that are flocked with decorative snow spray.

  2. Affix already-wired faux birds between the needles. To give more finefeathered friends a place to land, anchor a larger fallen limb in a doorside urn or pot filled with pebbles.
