A couple years ago, I needed a new Christmas wreath for the front door. Being frugal, I wanted to see if I could make one just as nice but more inexpensively than new.
I have a wreath of pine cones wired to a frame I got at a thrift shop years ago, which I have decorated annually with bits of tinsel, ribbon, ornaments, etc.
I go every Christmas to where the trees are dumped and take the ribbons some lights and wreaths. I take the wreaths and use the trimmings to cover my flower beds, berries to feed birds keep the frames for next year, go back to home depot where they trim trees the next year and get free trimmings to make my wreaths. All free and not that much waste for the landfills! JJ from Atlanta
