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 $5.99. The 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.
