Thrifty Outdoor Christmas Wreaths
Look at my lovely outdoor Christmas Wreaths! And they only cost me about 50 cents! I’m going to tell you how you can make them for cheap too.
First you head to your local Home Depot and pick up some free Christmas tree clippings. YES they are free and they have many. You might be able to get them at other places, but I can only confirm Home Depot. Yes that’s an entire bin full of free trimmings! I may have to come up with some more projects and go back for more.
I would recommend taking your gloves with you to avoid getting sap all over your hands. Because then you’ll try to take a picture for your readers and then your sister will call and you’ll get sap all over your phone! But I should stay on subject. Come home and lay out a blanket in the living room, because it’s raining outside and you just can’t wait to get started. Here’s what you’ll need:
Garden ties or trash bag ties (either will work)
A wire hanger (You know you have them and they can finally be put to good use)
Christmas Ribbon (The kind you bought on Clearance the day after Christmas last year for 90% off) 🙂
You take your wire hanger and form into a circle. It doesn’t have to be perfect because no one will see it. And the best part about using these is that you’ll already have your hook to hang it with. Then you’ll trim off clippings and arrange around the wire. Once you’ve got it they way you want, use the ties to secure them. Again, don’t worry too much about hiding the ties. I doubt anyone will be close enough to see them.
Then just add your bow and hang it up outside. It’s that easy. Do you have any Thrifty Christmas Decor Ideas? Please feel free to share a link to your thrifty post.
