Holler Dollar: Boxwood Wreath

Welcome to our new feature Holler Dollar! I’m constantly surprised what little beauties can be made with just a dollar, and even more surprised at the little treasures that can be found for the same amount. I’m excited to share these frugal finds, and to enforce the belief that you don’t need a lot of money to have pretty things.

To start us off here’s a wreath made out of  boxwood clippings I trimmed from my hedge; I bought a 18″ grapevine wreath from the dollar store and simply stuffed the clippings into the wreath. I’m not sure how long this fresh wreath will last, so I sprayed it with hairspray to try and lock in some of the moisture. The project took about 40 minutes, for that amount of time I’ll be happy to get a week out of it, and who knows maybe it’ll look pretty once it dries out.

PS. I just came across this World Market coupon to save $10 on $30 or more…click HERE to print. Making the chairs Em blogged about on Monday only $59…can I hear a whoot whoot?!
