DIY Christmas decor ideas from three florists

DIY Christmas decor adds a warm, handmade touch to your home during the holiday season. Three Ottawa-area florists show how you can do it with simple materials and a minimum of fuss. All three volunteered their time to decorate homes during the 2017 Homes for the Holidays fundraiser for Hospice Care Ottawa.

Lynette Deir of Stoneblossom Floral Gallery in Orléans shows you how to make a charming little moss Christmas tree. You’ll wind up doing more than one of these!



In Manotick, Rebel Petal’s Michelle VandenBosch transforms a glass bowl, some holly and water, and a candle into a seasonal stunner for your entryway, dining room or almost anywhere.


And Jessica Barrett of Mill Street Florist, another popular Manotick destination, fashions two elegant decorations with boxwood, roses and creative flair.
