This wreath was practically free to me. The only money I spent was about $2 for the 18” wire wreath frame. I clipped the branches off the evergreens around my neighborhood. And I had the burlap on hand. I’ve been seeing these simple, beautiful wreaths all over the place and figured I could make one just as easy.
First, I gathered different sizes of branches from the trees. If you don’t have any trees around to clip from, a lot of Christmas tree farms will give away the clippings for free.
Brought in a mirror from my dining room and all the other decor I already had. Total cost of my Christmas mantel this year, roughly $2.
I hope this inspires you to decorate using existing items around your home, instead of spending unnecessary moolah on new stuff.
