Say It 3 Times Fast

Cheap Wreath, Cheap Wreath, Cheap Wreath

One of my September goals was to make something for me.  Well this is technically for the house, but I'm counting it as the same.

Pretty huh?

Kidding- when visiting John's parents this summer I found the wreath at Goodwill for $0.95.


The front color was ok (it actually photographed prettier than in real life), but too light for my needs.  FYI- the back was gold.  A few coats of Lab Brown later.....



Some fabric, buttons, glue and the final product.



One bummer about my black door is that dark items don't "pop".  In fact I think I'm going to have to make a "back board" for my black Halloween feather wreath. 

Have you made anything for your house lately?

Nice job, Leigh:> Disadvantage to dark doors...no pop.
