Nothing. Nothing is better than free!
Do you remember the wooden box I bought a few weeks ago?
I had wanted to put a little tree in it for some porch decor.
But when I went to Home Depot and priced their little live trees, I feinted. Sure, for your main tree in your house they are very well priced, but for an extra tree for the porch that I had no intention of watering very often I just didn't want to make the investment.
After I revived myself, I quickly modified my plan.
I noticed some tree branches laying beside the trash can, next to where they cut the bottoms off the Christmas trees. I asked the cashier about them and she said I could have them.
She bagged up the whole pile for me. For free!!!
I just put a bucket in my wooden box, filled it with water and arranged my free greenery. Voila I had a touch of green for the front door.
And so much cheaper than my original idea of putting a little tree in it.
I even had enough left over to fill some other containers.
Thank you Home Depot!

Great job, it really looks so pretty! And you certainly can't beat free. That was so nice of the lady to wrap them up for you too.
So clever and practical--I love it! And I love visiting just to see those pretty cloved oranges. 🙂
Pam how great is that...very creative!! It really looks lovely!

Pam, that looks perfect and really you got the effect you hoped for free. I'm thinking there might be cutting from my woods out back. Merry Christmas, Helen
Love your displays! You're right, those little trees ARE expensive! This year, I bought less expensive swags (which have a variety of greenery in them) to dismantle and use for my doorway displays.

This evening I just filled a wooden box with free evergreen cuttings from Lowes. And Santa is bringing our six year old a vintage Flexible Flyer like the one in your picture 🙂
