A Fall Wreath for Under $10

Although I'm sulking about the end of summer, it's time to suck in my pouting lower lip, and embrace the autumn. Nothing cheers me up like shopping, so I spent a little time on-line looking for a fall wreath, and found the following on Amazon:

Nice, eh? LOVED the colors and the sunflowers, so I 
scrolled down to check out the price....

$189

Yes, I swear!  (I heard you collectively say, "NO?!")

BUT, I loved the colors, and I liked the silk leaves. So I stole a little inspiration, and decided to make my own. 

For under $10. 

Yes, way! (I heard you all say, "No way!") 

............Yeah, I need a nap. 

Anyway, let me break this down for you:
  • Grapevine 18" wreath ($4 at AC Moore, but I know they have them at dollar stores and sometimes Michael's for less)
  • Small piece of burlap scrap (free-ish)
  • 3 packages silk leaves ($3 total, 1$ each at the dollar store)
  • 1 bunch silk sunflowers ($1 at the dollar store) 
  • Hot glue (free-ish)

All I did was use the hot glue to adhere them to the grapevine, and voila!

What do you think?
