Ombre Jingle Bell Door Greenery

New York City floral-design team Putnam & Putnam turned what's essentially throwaway material — a clipping from the base of a Christmas tree — into this modern masterpiece.

steps

  1. Invert a triangular branch of greenery.

  2. Wire on clusters of jingle bells in muted shades of green, gold, and red. (The first two colors are easy to find, and a quick coat of spray paint turns plain ones the softer pink.)

  3. Top the hanging greenery with a broad satin bow and hang on a mounted hook to display. (Tip: Its wide tails will protect your door from any possible scratches.)
