Spring Wreath

Hey guys! I hope your day is going well. First off I wanna say I am so excited I sold my first etsy item this weekend! Yay!! I will be working on new items for my store this weekend and will post them next week sometime.
Today I wanted to share with you a wreath I recreated for 6 dollars. Last year I bought two of these wreaths at Kirkland's in the clearance rack for 3 dollars. I couldn't pass them up for that price. 
    Here is what the wreath looked like before.


Here is the after. I bought a small bunch of flowers at Michaels, they were half off for 6 dollars. I decided to leave the yellow flowers that were on the wreath before, I think it turned out good. I might add some ribbon to the top or just leave it the way it is.


 So what do you guys think of my spring wreath? My front door was looking really bare! I haven't had anything up there since Christmas. I have a few more spring touches to share with you this week. Stay tuned!  

I will be joining

And I heart naptime
