It's November! Let's Celebrate With A Wreath.


 I love how decorating my home on a tight budget has forced me to think outside the box.  I doubt I would ever think to try some things if I had the money to just go to a store and pick out all the fall decor I like for my home.  Sure I have flops.  But the trial and error process makes it a challenge and all the more fun for me.

This project was inspired by my bush outside.  Yep.  I love greenery and after spending an hour in Hobby Lobby with my kiddos, I realized I just could NOT fork out money for overpriced fake leaves, garland, flowers, and berries.  My kids loved the visual stimulation while we were in there though!  I think Keller was mesmerized that entire hour.

So my bush and I got an agreement going.  He let me cut him up with my scissors with a promise I would never make him look at 8-inch high grass ever again.  
I would be sure to let my husband know too of our agreement.


 

After creating this wreath, I got my Pottery Barn magazine in the mail and saw this:


So I figured I could confidently share my project with y'all since I had PB's blessing.  

You'll need:

::Sprigs of a hearty leafed plant {my leaves were thick and waxy}
::Scissors
::Wire {mine is jewelry wire but you're supposed to use green wire found in floral sections}
::Jute {I used for hanging my wreath}
::Glue gun and glue sticks
::Mini pinecones {found mine for $2.50 in Hobby Lobby in the fall section}
::Wire wreath form
