Thrifty Thursday: Thrift Store Wreath Transformed

Ok, before I get into my wreath transformation, I have to mention a few things!  
First of all, tomorrow I am heading to Texas for over a week!  I have not been able to contain my excitement for days!  My sister and her family just moved there from New Jersey, and because they plan to "put down roots" there, they bought a house!  So I am going to help her with all of her DIY projects, painting, and decorating.  And did I mention I'm going solo....meaning no kids?!  Oh yeah!  My sister has 3 boys too, but to go by myself is just fabulous!  
Anyways, so I will be somewhat MIA until I get back.  But when I do, I'll have LOTS to blog about :)

Secondly, I fixed my profile so I'm no longer a No-Reply Blogger!!!  So sorry, I had no idea I was, and now its fixed! Yay!

On to my wreath: This is the finished product! 
While I was browsing the thrift store the other day, I came across this cheezy, ugly looking wreath.  But it was only $6, so I got it thinking I could probably do something with it to make it pretty!  It doesn't look so bad in this picture, but it was!  It just looked really cheap...the leaves are stiff and spindly!
 So I first added some orange and yellow burlap.  I looped it around the wreath, hot glueing it where I thought it needed it.  Then I added some pine cones (which I also found at the thrift store...$2).  And finally I glued some little "pumpkin picks" that I found at Wal-Mart for $1.97 each.

 I was able to turn a cheezy thrift store wreath into a nice, pretty one for about $20!  I think it was worth it....have you seen the prices for wreaths lately?! No thank you!!! lol
Have a fabulous week!  I'll be back in about a week!
