Buy a Cheap Wreath

Wreaths don't have to cost a lot -- I found mine for $4.

I went shopping at my local Wal-Mart for a cheap and very basic wreath. Lucky for penny-pinching me, I found a nice green fake wreath -- as plain as can be -- that was all of $4. You can find similar fake wreaths at retail stores like Target, K-Mart and local discount stores, or pick up one after the holidays at a deeply discounted price.

What you should look for:

  • A wreath with at least a 15-inch diameter, or it will get lost on your front door.
  • Something that will be sturdy when cut in half. A wire frame is sturdy; a styrofoam-backed wreath cut in half would probably fall apart.
  • A wreath with wire branches or stems, so you can move or rearrange them to your liking, and fluff them up.
