I am going to show you how to make a wreath with garland. The way I keep myself from spending too much money on home decor is to use items that I already have.

My husband has always said that if you save your pennies, you will have your dollars to spend. We live by this rule. Small items add up. Resist buying 4 $25 items and you will have $100 to spend on something bigger.
I am participating in the One Room Challenge. This is a challenge where you have 8 weeks to recreate a space in your home. I have purchased all new outdoor furniture for this challenge so I am trying to save money where I can. After seeing a boxwood wreath in the store, I knew that I could probably make one using items that I already have at home.
A new boxwood wreath would be perfect for my side door. I realized that I had an old thrifted boxwood garland in my garage that I had never used that would be perfect for a wreath. The only thing I needed was a wire wreath form. These can be purchased for only a couple of dollars.
The instructions are very simple.
- Wrap the wreath around the wire form.
- Secure the garland to the wreath form with wire.
- Cut off the remaining garland and secure with a piece of wire. I had a few leftover pieces of garland so I cut it apart and used as fillers in the garland.
It is so easy to make a wreath with an old garland. This project only took a few minutes and saved me money by using items that I already had at home.
