Mini holiday tree

As festive as an evergreen bough but less expected, a cypress-tree door decoration will see you through the holidays and beyond. Set a potted mini cypress on a plastic saucer, wrap in a burlap bag, and nail the drawstring to your door (adding a twig of barberry if you like). Keep the tree well watered, and plant it at the end of the season.
