Holly and Boughs on a Dress Form

My girlfriend has a shop in the delightful store called Ruffles and Rust in Snohomish. The store closed down for three days to spruce it up for the Holiday Season. Everyone worked so hard and it was beautiful. I was asked to design an area in the back of the store and I am posting some photos from that design.

Anyone can do this if they own a dress form. I put twine around the waist and worked cedar boughs under the twine until she had a full skirt. Then I wound red ribbon around her waist to form a cummerbund. Finally I stuck sprigs of holly in the ribbon. I think she is just beautiful!
