MAKE A HARAKEKE CHRIST­MAS TREE

NZ House & Garden - - HOMES -

Af­ter the flax flow­ers have fin­ished there are large, dark, pointy seed pods at an­gles to the stalk. Wire sev­eral of these long stalks to­gether mak­ing sure the pods are ar­ranged to give a rounded tree-like struc­ture. Red and gold dec­o­ra­tions, home-made felt birds or small lights can be added, and do look great, or leave your tree bare in its nat­u­ral stylish shape. Anne Cors­bie, Man­gawhai
