OK–so I’m a copycat…. November 20, 2009

Filed under: Uncategorized — Rhonda @ 11:06 am

Well, I am a copy cat.  I admit it.  I copy all of the other talented bloggers that I stalk follow faithfully.  Sometimes I do it without any problems, other times not so much.  I have started looking at things differently in the stores now though so maybe I”ll start coming up with some new and fresh ideas to inspire others.  Or maybe not.  Who knows?  One thing that I do know is that I love creating things that look nice in my home and don’t cost lots of money.  This week I have made a couple of things I will share.

First up is the moss wreath.  I saw the first one that I loved in the Southern Living at Home catalog.  Then I started searching for more pictures.  Here are some that I just loved.  I love the simplicity of the moss wreath.

I purchased a straw wreath from Hobby Lobby at 50% off for $1.00, 2 bags of moss from Wal Mart for $1.99 each and brought them home.  They sat for about 2 weeks before I rediscovered my purchase.  Sad I know.  So I plugged in my hot glue gun and got busy (burning my fingers multiple times.  I hot glued the moss all around–I had just enough.  It sat a few more days while I tried to decide how and if to embellish.  On a trip to the Dollar Tree I found a cute Christmas bell door knob thingy. (Pretty sure that is the technical term)  It had a couple of fake greenery sprigs that I pulled out before I took a simple red satin ribbon and looped the “thingy” onto the wreath.  I stapled it to the top of my china cabinet and I love the simplicity.  It may not live there all holiday season, but for now I like it!

 

These pictures are terrible!  I am so unhappy with my camera.  I had a Kodak for years that took awesome photos and I bought a new one last year.  I hate it!!!  Uggggg!

More projects to come….stay tuned!  I’m adding this post to the Frugal Friday Linky Party over at
