The Square Wreath gets a Silver Save.

Last year I put up a square boxwood wreath
on the window above my kitchen sink.
Now that it's dry and faded, it's been demoted to front door duty.  
 It hung there lonely for a few weeks until I felt like getting crafty.

Then I saw my inspiration at the Bachman's Winter Ideas House -see it here
Well that did it.  I knew I could fancy up my square wreath.
I have some silver coffee pots already, but they seemed big for what I wanted to do.
Just my luck - I spotted 2 child size pots at Goodwill. Score.
 Darling. (Or should I say Darjeeling?)

The big one was $5.99The smaller one was $2.99.
I snatched them up. (mine!)
I bought the checked ribbon at Goodwill too. 99 cents.

The pots were pretty tarnished and usually I'd just leave them that way.
But I had the hankering to clean them up.
So I gave them a quick polish with toothpaste and a damp paper towel.

I strung them up and tied them to the back of the wire form. done.
It took me 10 minutes.

I can easily change the ribbon color and toyed with putting a bow in front,
 but I like the boxwood fluffiness. 

A nice $10 save for an old wreath.
Merry Merry!
