My {new} fall wreath!!

Ok so my -sweet friend- emailed me this morning to tell me that she and her sister-in-law were going to make one of my fall wreaths that I chatted about awhile back. Isn’t that just neato!! It made my day!! But it also got me to thinking…hmmm…I should really get off my hiney-hodie and upload pics of my new wreath to share. My stinker has been sick with an ear infection & teething {poor wittle} so there hasn’t been much creative activity around here!!
BUUUUUUT….I sat down and GOT ‘ER DONE! Drum roll please……

The base wreath is from Dollar Tree {of course}…it’s a twine-branchy one…they have really big ones for Fall. Go GET ONE!

I wrapped the wreath with scraps of my fave {burlap}. I just hot-glued the wreath with small strips of {burlap} around the wreath until it was covered.

THEN…to jazz it up a bit I made a few fabric flowers with left-over scraps of white {burlap} fabric.

I also used some brown paper from paper bags….you know the one’s at Wal-mart that are free to use for your ice cream or frozen foods??

Yeppers peeps….recycle those babies…cut it up and viola…brown craft paper!! I made the accordian-style flowerdy-thingys…(yes that’s a word)…

…and then hot-glued muslin-fabric flowers on top! I also added some vintage buttons I had to add some more pizazz!

I seriously love this…and my total cost was $1.00 because I had all the other scrappies I used for decor.

P.S. If you haven’t already…get your hiney’s to the Dollar Tree…they have some seriously CHEAP and CUTE Fall decor and Halloween goodies!! I’ll be posting some pics soon of faux Dollar Tree pumpkins I jazzed up! How can you beat $1???

Oh my ladies…see you at DT!!!
