Well I am a little late for making a summertime wreath for the door! We are having a bonfire bbq this weekend so I thought I should re-paint the door and while it was drying I realized it needed something! I always have a fall wreath or christmas stuff on the door but I had nothing for I grabbed my $1 wreath from a garage sale, I thought that would be a good base (because foam rings are no where to be found in my town)

and headed to the dollarstore! There were a lot of tacky flowers that were awful...then I found some greenery and fell in love! I picked 3 kinds and grabbed 5 bunches! I am pretty happy with the result!

I also had this candle and thought it looked pretty boring! ( Am I right?)

I was thinking of ways I could jazz it up a little, then I remembered a post from Thrifty Decor Chick HERE!

I went to my craft box and found ribbon I had bought on sale! is the finished project:

I am ok with the end result, I should have used wider ribbon! I think it is definietly an improvment though!

Well I have the rest of the day off so I am going to craft some more and see what else I can come up with!


  1. Wow! You are so talented. Love the blog and LOVE that candle!

  2. Thank you! It was so easy and I think it just jazzes it up a little!
