Its Begining To Look A Little Like Christmas!

Pretty soon it will be time to pull out our 4 million tubs of Christmas decorations and I can not wait!! Decorating for Christmas has to be one of my most favorite things to do all year. Putting it all back up is a very dark day for me :(. This year I started early cruising different Etsy websites and Pinterest looking for new ideas to help spruce up our already existing decorations. There is just soo much fun stuff out there! I could spend a million dollars just on decorating for Christmas alone!

The thing that I've been wanting most so far this year is a new wreath for my front door. Is it just me or have ya'll noticed too just how dang expensive they can get!! The cheaper ones that I did find... well, they just looked cheap. I found a beautiful wire mesh wreath on Etsy that I was dying for until I saw the price. $175.00! What!! I started wondering if  I could make one myself. I looked around online for a while until I found a couple of different websites that gave really easy tutorials. I kinda combined all the different techniques into what I thought I could manage and off I went to the store of my dreams... Hobby Lobby!

I bought all that I thought that I would need for soooo much cheaper than what they were priced for online.


Proof that I spent waaaay less than $175.00.
Actually once I got done making my wreath I realized that I had quite a bit left over of what I had bought. I really could have made two wreaths!! That comes out to a little over $20.00 each. How amazing is that!

Here is my progress in making my wreath :








The last picture is the finished product (I think). I keep fluffing and shifting things on it just a little bit. :)

I can't wait to get it hung on our front door!
