i fell in love with this wreath awhile back....but we have nothing like the acorns that dana used in our neck of the woods (well, not that I know of anyways.) then i came across brooke's blog "all things thrifty" where she used LIMA BEANS. that, i thought, was totally.doable. and for about $7.50 i had this cute new wreath. it would've been cheaper if i had used a spray paint i already had, but i wanted blue, which was on clearance at joann's for $2.99. i love how it turned out!
i was also feeling the need for a change on the mantle. i've had the same boring candle in this holder forever. i wanted something new and spring-y. i saw Vanessa's balls and immediately knew i had to have some. wow, that sounds a little questionable. hehe. i already had everything i needed but the styrofoam balls. i only had enough jute twine for one of the small balls, so i searched around for something else to use and came up with some clothesline i had laying around. i used some spanish moss on 2 of the balls and love how those turned out as well.
thanks for looking!
