Epiphytes makes this an easy evergreen project
This Christmas wreath made of epiphytes is an easy holiday project you can tackle with the children or grandchildren.
Epiphytes lend an interesting look to a Christmas wreath and need little care. And because they’re attractive all year round, there’s no need to pack away the wreath after the festive season. Hang it on the stoep, above your bed or on a door, or give it to someone special.
