This is a picture I found in the Pottery Barn Christmas catalog 2011.
Notice the birch tree letters saying NOEL? Isn't it fabulous!
I wish we had birch trees in Florida, but cypress branches will have to do.
While at my mothers house two months ago we cut down some cypress bushes and I brought home a pile of branches for Christmas garland and such. The branches made for perfect letter making.
This is what I pieced together.
My husband will be happy to see that the branches I have had on the back porch for a month and a half....GONE!
