i made my spring wreath...

i finally got around to making that spring wreath!
i bought the supplies last week at a.c. moore crafts store
and i happened to go on the weekend of
an amazing sale.

so here's what i walked out with...
i used a 50% off coupon for the wreath
which brought it down to $2.50.
i bought 8 of the robins egg blue, cream, mint green berry bundles...
they were 50% off making them 50 cents each.
$4.00 for all 8.
the spool of ribbon was $1.00
and using every crafters bff...
the hot glue gun...
i hot glued each berry bundle around the wreath
of which i did not take a picture of...
but i'm sure you all know what i'm talking about.
i hot glued two cream colored fabric rosettes that i had laying around...
wrapped the ribbon and made a bow....
and hung it on my door!
and there you have it...
my simple...
robins egg blue, cream and mint green
spring berry wreath!
all for a total of about $8.50ish and change.
not too shabby...
(i was just a tad bit off on my calculations when i mentioned
the total was $5.00 in a previous post...oopsies, my bad).

anyhoot...
the beautiful, lovely & sweet chrissy from
hoot designs is featuring oh, sweetlee me on her blog so
head on over there and take a peek.
she has a wonderful blog and an etsy shop
filled with lots of goodness!

happy monday!
