Today (in less that an hour) I made a fall wreath. I have never made one of these, but my friend made this beautiful table arrangement and posted it to facebook:
She said all the stuff she got was at Hobby Lobby, so I headed there yesterday morning and bought all this:
Which was all 50% off!!!!! WOOOOOHOOOOO!!!!!!! Expect the grapevine wreath... it was $5.99, but I also had a coupon for 40% any single full priced item!!! Yes I had a smile glued to my face when I walked out of Hobby Lobby spending about $25 for all my goodies. The letters... F A L... were supposed to go on my wreath, but I decided no after I put it all together. Here is how I did it:
The only supplies I used were floral wire (24 gauge which I already had) and a wire cutter.
First I wrapped my fall leaf garland around the wreath.
Then I used my floral wire and attached some areas with it. Now it was time to BEDAZZLE it with all the fun goodies! I just crammed all these guys in there, and got my design the way I wanted it.
I had to keep it propped up so I could assess where I needed to add more. Then I just used my floral wire and wrapped the attachments to the wreath. I had to go around and pull on them to make sure I had attached them all. Now it is hanging on my front door.
The funny thing is, I saw some of these listed at Hobby Lobby for over $100!!! Can you believe that!?!?! Even with 50% off that $50 which is still twice what I spent and it only took me an hour!!!
I hope I didn't offend anyone who went out and bought it.... yikes....sorry....
Autumn is coming... even to Texas...eventually!
Hope y'all have fun crafting!!!
