Star-Spangled Wreath


My poor front door wreath has been naked for a while now...and I decided it was time for a change. Well, this is what I started with...a couple of stars and a wreath hook!! All three pieces were on sale at Target....$1.50 each!!! Rock on!! I never hit GREAT deals like this! I knew once I saw these pretties I had to have them!!


I changed out my plain jane wreath holder for the new "lovely" and then went to work on the little stars.


The stars had these horrible ugly wire pieces attached to them...but I replaced it with my handy dandy raffia!! Easy Peasy!! ;)



Here they are in all their GLORY!! This was such an easy project, but made a big difference to my front door!!



And there ya have it....my purdy patriotic wreath....good to go throughout the summer...well at least until the end of July!

I already have plans for my next wreath. I found the idea on another blog.... http://thecottagehome.blogspot.com/2010/05/summer-fabric-rag-wreath-tutorial.html...it is one GORGEOUS WREATH!! Enjoy friends!!

  13. LOVE the wreath! I get such a high when I find things at Target or the Dollar Tree and can make something fabulous out of very little...however I am usually copying something I have seen in blog land HA! I am just not creative enough to come with ideas on my own! :)
