Add that perfect pop of color to your holiday decor with this faux crabapple pick. Christmas decorations in 18th-century Williamsburg consisted of whatever natural materials looked attractive at the bleakest time of year. As a symbol of eternal life, evergreens would be laced along railings and banisters or across mantels. They would frequently include pine, ivy, holly, and New World discoveries such as mountain laurel and magnolia leaves. Enhance a wreath, centerpiece, mantel display, or even your holiday gift-wrapping with this decorative faux crabapple leaf pick. 12"L

The custom of affixing fruits, such as pomegranates, vegetables, dried flowers, herbs, and other plant life to basic Christmas forms like wreaths, swags, and roping traces its roots to the early years of the 20th century, a time when Christmas was growing in significance and the Colonial Revival was pulling decorative impulses back toward the 18th century.
