I am always looking for a good way to update my holiday decorations without breaking the bank. I also love it when one item can do double duty (Like my sparkly red wreath that is perfect for both Christmas and Valentine's Day)
So when I found this spring Forsythia wreath on clearance for 90% off ($1.99) I couldn't pass it up.
I took all the flowers off and saved them for another (more Easter-like) project. I was left with a really pretty blank wreath form to work with:
JoAnn's had all their fall floral on sale for 70% off (making these less than 50 cents each):
I tore them into individual stems and added them to the wreath, along with some wooden candy corns and a little "Autumn Greetings" sign that I pillaged off some thrift store wooden figurines. (I still have a little wooden scarecrow and black cat left over!)
I think it turned out pretty cute.. and it looks a lot more expensive than the $5 I have invested in it!
