They projected the cost at $32. Sounds great, but why would I go buy a dowel, when the backyard is full of sticks for free? So I set out to make my free version of the wood rounds wreath.
First up, Alex helped me find the perfect sticks. I was looking for one or two that were at least a couple feet long and 1 1/2 -2" in diameter, to match the style of the wreath in the magazine. I found some long branches that had a good width and tapered to about a half inch in diameter at the end.
love how rustic and fallish it looks. I may add a bow or some other embellishment to it, but for now, I'm keeping it plain.
It ties in perfectly with my fall mums and my pumpkins for fall. Which I would love to step back and take a picture of for you, but it decided to rain buckets today.
It seems only fitting I share this over at The Nester's, since she's having a wreath link party. It is appropriately titled: You Made a Wreath out of What? So if you're visiting from there, hi. And if you haven't gone yet, go check out some fabulous wreaths!
