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.

Marissa says...

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.
