A .75 cent Fall Wreath

ImageToday I made a fall wreath and it cost me a whopping .75 cents. For real just .75 cents. I had found this fall garland at a yard sale for .75 cents, you can still see the price tag on it in the photo. Image

I then went off into the woods to find some vines. I pulled some bittersweet vine down out of the trees, it kills all the trees anyways so it’s good to get it down out of the them. I twisted the vine into a wreath by tucking all the ends inside each other and wrapping them around each other. Then I spray painted the wreath a nice pumpkiny orange color with paint I had left over from another project. Image

I only did this step because my front door is real dark and vine wreaths don’t show up well on it. I thought if I started with a base of orange color, any vine which showed through the leaves and things on the wreath would be orange and add to the color of the wreath instead of disappearing into the door.

Then I used my glue gun to glue on all the pieces which I had cut off of the fall garland. I added about 10 more fall leaves which I had left over from a project from last year, I think I got them in a package at the dollar store.

Then to finish it off, I added a bow made from bailing twine and some orange gingham ribbon I had left over from another project. Isn’t it wonderful when you can pretty up you world through frugality?
