The Wreath

It all started with Pinterest - yes, that rant about Pinterest still stands, but this was inspired from there.

I wanted to recreate a wreath of bulbs, I hate buying wreaths since they expire year after year, this one will hang in my home for a LONG time, possibly till I die... that is how much I love how it turned out!

So, being my crafty (and somewhat frugal) self, I set off to find the materials to make it.

Finding that bulbs are not quite as cheap as you'd expect, I found them for 80% off. 

This wreath, at cost would have run me about $125. ACK! I made it for under 35%!







So pretty! So pleased!

Many have asked me to make one for them - my answer - you buy the bulbs and materials and I'll glue it together!

This is beautiful! I love it! When I one day get settled in a home, I'm sooooo having you make me one.

Deal! You just have to collect the bulbs - make sure to catch the sales!!! :)
Miss you lady!

I want to make one too, but like you, I'm not spending $100+ for it... I'm thinking of catching after Christmas sales, then I'll have it later years
