Create Snow . . .
Don’t forget the mailbox for Holiday decorating!
When the weather turns cold, enhance the mailbox so the picture lasts longer.
Begin by cutting a piece of the Snow cover blanket to cover the top and hang about halfway down the sides of the mailbox. I took about three pieces of wire, wired the ends together to create a piece of wire to circle the mailbox. Tie the ends of the wire loosely. Take the end of the snow cover blanket and pull lightly to cause uneven ends. Place a large full branch of greenery on top of the mailbox. Tuck the end of the branch under the wire circling the mailbox. Place more branches of greenery down the sides and pointing down from the mailbox. Continue using the wire around the mailbox to hold the branches in place.
After placing the greenery on the mailbox, begin creating the bow. I used white ribbon with snowflakes in silver for my bow. Take several pieces of wire and cover each with floral wrap tape. Create a half bow to go at the top of the mailbox post. Attach it to the post. Make three large loops and secure them together with another piece wrapped wire. Place these loops to the back of the half bow to enlarge the bow. Make another cluster of three loops of ribbon, secure with wrapped wire, and place these loops to the bottom and right of the half bow. Take a long piece of ribbon and fold it in half. Wrap the fold with a floral wrapped wire. Wire the ends around the post of the mailbox.
Place pine cones on the top of the mailbox and throughout the loops creating the bow. Arrange the silver garland across the greenery and allow it to drape. Place icicles on hooks, made from wire, and hang from the Christmas greenery. Add “snowflakes” by placing small clusters of Baby’s Breath throughout the greenery. Let It Snow!!
