Snowflake Wreath!

I found some pretty snowflake ornaments on clearance for 10 cents a bunch at Target. I instantly knew that I wanted to make a wreath! I could not the right kind of wreath form so I had to get creative. While at Target, I found these frisbee-ish things in the Dollar isle. I figured I could cut off the fabric and use the foam as the wreath form!

I  hot glued alternating layers of snowflakes on the front and on the backside of the foam wreath until I got the 3 D look I was going for. It is even kind of in the shape of a snowflake!
They are so sparkly it looks so pretty!!

I got this circular wreath holder at Gardenridge for 3 bucks! I have wanted one of these for a long time!

I found this today at Goodwill. I have wanted one of these kitchen basket things to store fruit and veggies in. It was only six bucks and I am in the process of spray painting it black to match. It is now perfect and black and scrolly like the rest of our kitchen decor :)

One of my "clients" at work hand made this for me! I found one exactly like this that I wanted BUT it was tiny, tiny and FIFTY FIVE DOLLARS! What the heck??? He made it just a tad to big to put on our door (It is almost 3 ft across!!) so I am going to order another one! I was thinking about getting some black and white ribbon to hang it from. It is so big though, I think it might look kinda weird!

I found these at Target for $1.50! I wanted one when they first came out but they were like 30 or 40 bucks. I bought two :)
