Winter tends to do its own decorating in GriggsDakota.
Nevertheless, we can't help adding a few touches. It's windy here and rocks help hold down the clippings from the spruce trees that I brought in from the summer pasture.
We use the idea above on a picnic table or any other flat surface that is sturdy and needs a winter spruce up. I have a log about two feet high, stripped of bark, topped with a flat rock, then layered with tree trimmings and smaller rocks.
Indoors, of course, we need cheerful touches everywhere. I like to divide a circle into six and wire on six decorations to the wreath. I have been told that it is much easier to divide a wreath into eight. You can use nearly anything from candy canes to Christmas baubles.
I purchased a plain artificial wreath, then added wheat and trimmings.
Copper colored ribbon
And copper findings were purchased on Ebay to coordinate with the Farm Inspector's decor. Any color combination you like will work.
It's hard to believe there was a butterfly on that tree a few short weeks ago.
