Make a miniature kadomatsu “gate pine” decoration, the traditional way to observe the Japanese New Year. Placed in pairs on either side of an entrance door to welcome ancestor spirits, kadomatsu are made of pine (symbolizing endurance and longevity) and bamboo (symbolizing growth and prosperity). The elements are tied together using natural fibers.
