My mom and I went to the movies today to see Hope Springs. (Okay, I had my doubts but the movie was surprisingly good. The acting was fantastic...) Of course, I had to stop by Michaels. I had no coupons with me but of course I was only buying a few things. I wanted more Glossy Accents but of course, it was out. So $111 later, I ended up with several new projects to make. I am like Dead Woman Walking trying to make everything BEFORE school starts because I know I will have no time until maybe Thanksgiving Break! I decided to make a new wreath for my front door. I made a grape one last year but it is fading from the sun.
|This is the brand of the wreath and artificial flowers.|
|I bought the purple flowers for $6.29 each. I also got some white flowers and a few small grapevines.|
|The vine wreath itself was on sale for $4.99 hence the entire project. Why can't I walk past clearance craft items?|
|Old wreath. The copper wreath hanger is from Target.|

|I put the old wreath on the exposed brick by my dining room. I have this "grape" theme going.|
This is a very easy project to complete. However, I spent over $50 when you can buy nice wreaths for around that price. Yet I am not crazy about all that wire ribbon. I'm not sure if my wreaths are too plain. I like simple but I think I need those berry things to liven them up. What do you think?
