I've finally made my first wreath ever and I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out. It was pretty low on the cost scale since I got the Grapevine Wreath for free from a friend who didn't think she could put it to good use. I must say this thing was a bit intimidating at first (it actually lived in my crafting chest for about 4 months before I dared to touch it)because I had no clue what to do with it. One day I was at J's and came across these cute little Lavender bundles that were $1 so I thought maybe this would be cool. I hunted down those other picks which had a 40% off sign above, score right? Wrong, it turns out that discount marker was put in the wrong spot but luckily I had coupons so I still got em on sale.
Don't you just hate it when that happens? Personally I can't stand to pay retail, even when its tiny things like these too.

but for whatever reason this does in a very nice way.

This was a fun little project to make so I think I might start making more of these for each season from now on.
I'm on a roll this week, maybe my mojo is back :D
