thrifty wreath

Thursday, January 28, 2010 |
i was on this 'thing' yesterday where i wanted a wreath for valentine's day, but i really don't have the money to go out and buy stuff to make one. that is where this came in. and i must say-not too shabby for free!
somehow the photo i took of me wrapping the wreath is missing. oh well-it was a wreath i had sitting around in the craft drawer. it was a softer green wreath, but i think if i could have spent money, i would have gotten one of those that is smooth with the coating on it.
but again, i was trying to be thrifty.
and i just used the twine that i had from all the balls i made this year.

yup-that is my infamous basement floor where so many projects have been painted by the little space heater! we will never finish the basement because i would loose my paint booth!
well, one of the reasons why we won't finish the basement.
i hot glued some little candy hearts on there. i had to go through my jar that is holding about 3 bags of these looking for ones that were mostly centered and did say anything too lame.
and i didn't even eat one! so proud of me.


and this is how i hooked it onto the wall...a christmas hook! yes, i have many in my christmas decorations boxes and i think i even picked up one after christmas at target.

so there you have it.
i saved chris money AGAIN and i feel all special because i did something with what i
had on hand.
