Fall Wreath

Hello! I know it has been TOO LONG since I last blogged! Ha...and that cake I mentioned in my last post...too embarrassing to post pictures! I'm not giving up though...just haven't had time to redeem myself.

Anywho...on to business...well, fun stuff :D

I came across this super cute and inexpensive wreath on another blog....

....and being that I am still in the first year of my first home, I have NO decorations! So of course am going to make some!

I love wreaths, but I don't love the price tag. The wreath in the picture was made intirely out of dollar store items...exactly what I needed :)

SO...I went shopping!

I went to the dollar store and to Hobby Lobby to get my supplies:

Wreath - 1/2 off at Hobby Lobby = $3.00

Floral beads @HL = $2
Fake corn @HL = $3.98 (I "splurged" on this item!)

Garland and leaves from Dollar Store ($1 a piece =$5)

Okay, so I bought 2 strands of leaf garland that have some pumpkins and gourds on them and 3 different colors in the leave bundles.  I caught a deal on the nice wreath. What I like about it is that b/c of how it's made, it's OK to have areas of the natural wreath showing...don't have to worry about missing spots! I then got 2 of the cute twigs with the "berries" on them...and couldn't resist when i saw that adorable corn! So my project total actually came to about $14...would have been only $10 without the corn, haha! of the joys of making your own wreath is that you can add whatever you like to it!

I just used a low temperature hot glue gun to attach all my "Ingredients" ;) we have the garland and berries attached...

....and my final product....

...and here it is, hanging on my front door...a little crooked, but that's ok for now!

Now...I just need to add a few more leaves....  :)

Hopefully some of you will try this on your own! It was inexpensive, easy, and didn't take very long to make either!

Thanks for visiting!
