Simple Copper and Greenery Wreath
I love finding inexpensive and creative ways to decorate for the holidays. By using items I have around the house or cheap materials and a little bit of time to create things on my own, I can save money and love my decor that much more knowing I created it myself.

This project combines copper tubing that you can buy from the hardware store (or that you might have left over from a refrigerator install) and fresh greenery cut right from a plant outside or faux greenery that will last multiple seasons from the craft store.
After cutting the copper tube, I used hot glue to attach the ends together.
To add some "snow" to the fake evergreen branch, I used spray adhesive and sprinkled it with white sand, fine white shimmer glitter, and a few clear small beads. These were all supplies I already had, but I wouldn't go out of my way to buy them!
I used some more hot glue to attach the greens, and cotton clothesline to hang the "wreaths".
