During the holiday season, you may turn your sights to indoor decorating, cooking, and entertaining. With all the hustle and bustle going on, I need my daily dose of Garden Therapy to ensure that I have the emotional stamina to make it through. Somehow, even just a bit of time at the garden center or out clipping evergreens can change the whole day.
This is why I have whittled away my worries by creating a whole host of creative and crafty projects for Christmas. And what better way to have a merry little Christmas than to work with miniature gardens? From teeny tiny evergreen wreaths to lit-up decorated miniature Christmas trees, here are some of the projects that will whisk you away to a happy little place.
