Add a little bit of festive cheer to your kitchen this year with seasonal, winter greenery on your open shelves or mantel! This is an incredibly simple way to incorporate holiday flare into your kitchen without sacrificing on storage space or functionality. Want to know how we achieved this incredibly simple DIY? Follow the steps below!

1. Instead of buying already-made garland, opt to purchase a real Christmas Tree & DIY your own garland instead. Use gardening clippers to cut off all of the branches on your tree and set them aside. Be sure to cut them at varying lengths for a little bit of depth and variety! The key is to make it look as natural as possible.

2. Now it’s time to prep your shelves! Remove any items off of your shelves and layer the shelving with clear plastic so that the sap from the branches doesn’t ruin or soil them. Once you’ve finished placing the plastic, add your décor pieces or cutlery back into place.

3. Okay… now let’s get to the layering! Stack fir and pine cuttings across your shelving at random. Be sure to add in extra layers and continuously look for opportunities to fill space, and add a little bit of depth. The goal is to create a natural, full, yet put together and cohesive display.

4. Voila! An easy, yet impactful, holiday statement in your kitchen!
