I picked a few burlap coffee bean bags from Snug Harbor Farm to cover up my boxwoods. I was hoping I could just slip the bags over the plants but that didn’t work. I tried slicing a slit up the side but the bag still didn’t fit. So I cut the two sides and wrapped them around. I wove two bamboo sticks in on the corners to keep the burlap upright and secure to the plant.
Greg is not a fan; he thinks they look really silly. He just came into the house with a comment of, “Wow your bushes look cozy!” Maybe he’s just grumpy from attaching tar paper to the back of the house? So what do you think: Do they look totally dumb or not so bad? If you’ve come up with clever cheap solution to cover your boxwoods please feel free to share. Keyword here is “cheap”.
p.s I finished all four. I don’t think they look too bad and and three out four of the coffee bags have these really cute festive stripes on them.
