Green Wreath

Now that I’m a home owner, I feel like I have to do home owner things. You know, like hang a wreath.

Not just any wreath, though. A homemade one. So, I whipped this bad boy up with a dollar store wreath, hot glue, and some tiny styrofoam balls from Tai Pan. (they kind of made me never want to eat Kix cereal ever again…Seriously, they feel identical)

I hung it by simply stapling the ribbon to the to the top of the door with a normal ol‘ stapler. So easy. Thank you guys so much for answering my burning question. You guys are the best.

    A stapler! I had no idea!!! Glad you asked, so those of us (meMEme) that didn’t know, now… KNOW! Love the wreath, it is just springy and St. Patricks-y and Easter-y all at once! ;)

    So cute. They remind me of the green runts (i hope someone knows what I’m talking about). Congrats on the house! I love simple dinners. Try the ranch burgers… one packet of ranch mix… one lb of ground beef/ground turkey… Then add some cheese and yummy yum yum!

    I have seen this wreath in person. She did, indeed, glue every little sucker on there. It weighs about two ounces. So cute.

    I may have to make a trip to the dollar store! I bought those same vase fillers in green and pink. I made a valentine heart wreath with the pink ones, and use the leftovers to make decorative balls. The first person who came to my door said it reminded them of sixlets candy. (That gives the rest of you an idea how small those little things really are!)

    I love how your green wreath turned out.

    I saw this in the line up at Just A Girl and thought there is something fun, simple and colorful. Just my style. How long though did it take you to glue all of those little bead/ball thingys on there? The end result, though, was well worth it.
