A New Project For Me

The other day I stopped into our Navy Exchange and browsed a bit, when I noticed a very cute wreath hanging up. I inquired as to how much it was and was a little taken aback when the floral clerk informed me of a price tag of $50! However much I might have liked it...I didn't like it $50 worth! So, when I went to Wal-Mart a couple of days later, I checked out the small craft section and even though there wasn't much to choose from, I grabbed a couple things of silk flowers and the grapevine wreath and determined to try to create something myself. I had intended to use these pretty, bright, pink and yellowish flowers along with a couple of the greenish ones and the hydrangeas, but somehow it took on a life of it's own and I think it came out better than I could have hoped for and all for about $14+tax. Not only was it pretty bargain priced, but I also have the satisfaction of knowing that I made it and there isn't another anywhere just exactly like it! So what do you think???

Very pretty, it's nice to put your own flair on the wreaths. Hydrangeas are always a great choice, too!
