I bought this wooden snowman container last year at Goodwill and decided to leave it as is. I just cleaned it and packed it away. This year I pulled it out to add to my decorations.
But what to use it for? It obviously needed to hold something, but what?
I decided to fill it with greens and made a trip to the dollar store, where I picked up 5 of these filler bouquets and a square of foam.
I just put the foam inside and added the filler, fluffing it out when I was done.
The filler and the foam totaled $6.00, the container was, I think about $1.00-2.00 at Goodwill.
Here it is back in it’s place on my hall tree tabletop.
With a very simple bow made from wire ribbon that I also picked up at the dollar store. I attached it to one of the filler stems with some florist wire.
I didn’t glue anything in place, so if I decide to use it for something else next year, all I have to do is remove the bouquets and the foam.
This took about 5 minutes to put together and was under $10.00! My favorite kind of project!
