Yeah, I DIY! Crafty Wreath


I go to Goodwill or the Salvation Army weekly to see what kinds of goodies are there. We have several in Des Moines, so I work the town! I recently found a small wreath made of vine. I had plans for it! I went to the dollar store and picked up some springy silk flowers. I cut the flowers down to size, wove them into the wreath and added a pretty ribbon.
Total Cost: $3.50! The pretty spring wreaths at Target are like $30.00!
Viola! We have some spring flair on our front door!

I DIY too, I can't help it! I should be working on some illustrations right now, but I'm making jewelry. I need to set up something on Etsy. Good job on the wreath, phenomenal price!

I love DIY and HGTV, in this house it's a regular station we watch. I noticed you said you just moved from Michigan, I too am from MI. The winters have been cold here but MI has been hit pretty hard too and has had colder temperatures it seems for longer periods. I can hardly wait until spring! :)
