I have an artificial tree, which I love. But it doesn’t smell like a fresh-cut tree. In the past I have used. Scentsicles. I like them. but I wanted that REAL TREE SMELL without the imperfection of a real tree:) So, I bought a fresh cut wreath from my local grocery store.
I bought mine, but you could make it using a wire frame and fir branches, assuming you don’t live in the middle of the city. I prefer to just buy mine 🙂
Next step is to pretty it up a little. I wanted to match it up to my tree, which I decorated all in blue this year.
I bought a couple of boxes of balls at dollarama, in blue and silver. It’s super easy to add these to your wreath. I already had a huge jar of zap straps (doesn’t everybody?) I bought these at dollarama as well.
To add the ornaments to the wreath, just pass the zap strap through the hasp on the ornament
I also added some ribbon. This is wired edge ribbon. I had this piece leftover from a few years ago 🙂 Just tuck the edge in and bend it as you go into folds. Tuck the ribbon under the boughs
Here it is done up
Just a couple of bucks worth of dollar store swag to make this little green wreath look beautiful. If you are way more motivated than I am you can go out and gather your own greenery and then you just need a wire frame to attach it to.
Now I have that Christmas tree smell despite the fact that I have an artificial tree AND I have a pretty Christmas wreath on my wall.
Thanks for stopping by and Merry Christmas!
