If you live in an area where there are not a lot of Evergreens, or even if there are but you don't feel like trimming them for decorations I stumbled upon a great find for these trimmings. We bought our live tree at Home Depot the other day and they will trim the trunk of your tree for you. There was a large pile of Noble Fir and other types of Evergreen tree trimmings where the man was trimming our tree. I asked if I could have them and he said sure! So I piled up a cart full of greenery to take home to decorate my mantelpiece and make a large wreath all for FREE! I imagine any place that trims live trees for their customers will have extra laying around. So if you'd like the smell of Christmas scattered throughout your house or just want to make a wreath for your door, check out Home Depot and places like it for some free trimmings.
I'll be posting more of our frugal Pioneer Christmas Projects later so come back and check them out!
