Revamped Wreath

This is the an old wreath I revamped for eight dollars!
It looks better in person and even glistens in the sunlight.
 I bought the plastic sparkly, and plain balls in varied sizes at a dollar store! 
Two shades of blue off set  the silver!
Not normally a blue person, I am surprisingly attracted to it lately!

This  red one at pier 1 imports is shockingly $115.00!!! In person it doesn't
 look this full!
 
                                    
 This silver one, also at pier 1 imports is $80.00, no where near this full looking in person! My daughter  said ours looks way better. I had planned to add some ribbon to mine, but decided against it!

Got an old wreath laying around that looks kind of 80's or 90's ish a little limp and outdated? Give it a revamp! Fill your boots at the dollar store! Check out a few, they all have different decorations!  Get a little floral wire then go to town with anything that suits your fancy! Happy decorating!

Well done! It looks beautiful and so much lovlier than the shop bought ones! There's so much more joy and satisfaction too knowing that is cost so little but contains so much creativity and love. xx

I agree with Pepper. Your wreath looks much better than the ones from Pier 1....and I definitely like the cost of yours! I love the dollar stores and almost always find fun things to play with.

Sorry I haven't been around much lately. Busy, busy, busy....but hopefully it will soon be back to normal.

i do that all the time, recycle my wreaths and the dollar store makes it easy to have a different fancy every year...Your looks like a million bucks!

WOW!! Yours is BEAUTIFUL!! I would buy it over those others in a second! You are truly an artist in all you do!
floral wire, eh? I think it takes more than that!! I really don't think I could even begin to make such a lovely wreath! but I agree that you can find some great buys at the dollar stores! I found christmas tree cookies that taste so close to my butter cookies, I said F*** it, I'm buying these!!! Just in case I don't get time to bake! :))
(bah humbug!) xox hugs

I really prefer yours because I like a wreath with an evergreen base. The blue is gorgeous! 8 dollars? Amazing!
