$1 Green Wreath


$1 Wreath - using yard waste - LeroyLime


After trimming up our outdoor landscaping for the winter, 
I decided to let a few of my trimmings take center stage for just a bit longer.

I picked up the wire wreath shape from my local dollar store for just one dollar and grabbed a roll of fishing line (that I had on hand) to attach the pieces to my wreath form.

Tie the pieces on one by one and then fill in the spots by slipping in a few smaller pieces until you
get "the look" you are trying to achieve. My goal was to just cover up any and all portions of the wire wreath form.

 Hang and enjoy! This one lasted about a two weeks before the leaves turned brown. It took less than 10 minutes to pull it together so if you're looking for a quick project to wow your company, keep a  wire wreath form on hand. You can fill it with anything for a fun simple creative project!

I love how you turned yard waste into something truly beautiful. I think I need to head outside right now and trim up some bushes...my front door could use a wreath!

I recently purchased this same wire wreath form and was deciding what I should do with it. Now I know! Thank you for the inspiration!

This is so pretty. I also like to make wreaths using nature. I use leaves from olive trees and they last months. Your wreath is very nice and full.

Sometimes you just can't beat simple and this green wreath is perfectly simple. I'm delighted to be featuring it on my Sunday Features at Shabby Art Boutique today. Hugs ~ Kerryanne

I would love to do this project. What type of greenery did you use? I would like to find some greenery that would last me at least a week.
