Fall Wreath from the....DOLLAR STORE

I had so much fun a few days ago making this wreath that I found on blogland....would you believe it actually came from the DOLLAR STORE??!! I was shocked too. Allison from the House of Hepworths did a great tutorial on this wreath that only cost $10 dollars! You can find the tutorial here.
I ended up using all the fall leaves plus I only used a few of the decorative pumpkins (although I did buy an extra leaf bunch- I love the colors of the fall leaves (especially since here in Southern CA they're hard to come by) so I decided to keep the focus on the leaves. I'm in love!

  1. It really looks great! I love when the silk autumn leaves go on sale- I can never resist buying some and planning to use them somehow... so far I've used them in preschool and Music Makers while we sing songs about the falling leaves and the kids toss them around :) But now I want to get a wreath form and make something beautiful too!
