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!

I just caught up on several of your past posts I missed while I was on my vacation and blog break. Love all your Christmas vignettes. I also like the tablescape with your ne Pfaltzgraff Woodland dishes. I love that pattern and have been thinking about getting it for myself.
Hope all is well with you and your family.
Those are my favorite kind of projects too Kathy, and I have to say my most rewarding! That turned out great!
Great arrangement. I really like the price.
Very cute arrangement! And I love the price!
That looks wonderful! What a great deal for such an adorable bit of Christmas greenery. I love the dollar tree. Check out my last post with the wreath I made from dollar tree items.
That looks just darling and I love that it can all be taken back apart in case you want to do something different next year!
Hello Kathy~ I love the magic that takes place when you take various treasures and pair them together for a final result of something beautiful. It's sooo rewarding to create a "sweet Surprise."
I adore your sugar plum kitchen decor. I want to make a few mini faux sweet treats for a sugary themed tree.
It's good to be back, I hope you get a chance to stop by for a visit.
It looks beautiful. Great combo.
