March 5th, 2017 will be written in golden ink to the Navage family history book, for it is the day my babes finally took down the Christmas wreath that had been hanging over our front door since December 2015! I don’t know if The Guinness Book of Records has a “procrastination” category, but if they do, my babes’ 437 days should certainly qualify! Lol. Since I had nowhere to hang a wreath until Sunday afternoon, it’s no wonder why last Saturday I was busy DIYing a wreath stand to hang my new faux succulent wreath 😉
Apart from the wreath stand, I was also busy shopping at Dollar Store this weekend, and that is when I decided to make a faux succulent wreath for this spring. They had some really cool succulents at the Dollar Store – which was perfect, because just recently, I saw a faux succulent wreath in Pottery Barn’s catalog and was thinking about making one sometime in the future. Oh well…it was meant to be mine sooner rather than later! Hahahaha 🙂
Then I placed the moss wherever there was a big gap on the grapevine wreath. Something to note here: I didn’t try to fill all the gaps so the grapevine would peek through here and there. I think that randomness gave the whole thing a better and more realistic look.
And that was that! What do you think? Wasn’t it the easiest wreath ever?…
…and it looks pretty good too!
Some close-up shots for you to see the Dollar Store succulents.
For a dollar each, they look really great!
Before I forget…how do you like my new DIY wreath hanger? It cost me 5 dollars to make that. Not kidding! You just gotta love Hobby Lobby’s discount aisle 😀
