It says, "I know it's fall, even though the sun seems to think it's still summer. That's right. I'm more with it than Mother Nature."
But have you seen the prices these stores try to charge for a good decorative wreath?! Well, I wasn't going to shell out good money when I could have a grand ol' time making my own pretty fall wreath while showing you how easy it is!
And how cheap it is! Here's the cost breakdown for my materials:
18" grapevine wreath: $2.50
3 decorative crystal picks: $3.57 ($1.19/ea)
Fall berry garland: $2.99
Decorative ribbon for bow (3 yards): $1.00
Grand Total: $10.06
(Did I mention Michaels is having a rockin' sale right now? Go!)
I started by wrapping the garland into the grapevine, then added the crystal picks. I finished it off with a homemade floral bow and voila!
Hope this inspires some kind of wreath frenzy in your house. My front door is so autumnal now! I have another wreath project (a la Martha) in the works, but can't seem to get my hands on any dried corn husks. Maybe it just isn't corn husk season quite yet? I'll keep my eyes peeled. Or maybe I'll peel and dry my own husks and just get on with it already...
