Joy to sales and dollar bins!  Believe it or not, I made this entire Holiday Joy Wreath for less than $15.00.  First of all, I found these wreaths in the dollar bin at Target a couple days after Halloween on sale for $.75 each! Now, I have made these wreaths before from branches from my back yard, but come on! I couldn’t pass up this deal, amirite?

Then, using a coupon I had, I bought these three letters made of MDF at Michael’s for $5.00. BTW, I have the Michael’s iPhone app on my phone and it’s FABULOUS! No more printing out or forgetting coupons!

Also, after Halloween I bought a bag of plastic bling (hee hee) for $1.19 for the entire bag.  On that same trip I bought the ribbon using a coupon for $2.50.  If you want to count the craft paint I already had from making my recycled T shirt banner, it’s STILL less than $15.00!  Yay me! Can you tell I’m pretty proud of this?

The wreath is pretty self-explanatory.  I first painted the letters with craft green paint.

While I was waiting for it to dry, I strung the plastic gems onto my ribbon to embellish the bottom of each letter.

Next I put it all together and voila! My holiday joy wreath was complete!  I think I’m going to wait until after Thanksgiving to hang it on my door outside because I don’t want the neighbors to think I’m nuts for decorating for Christmas too early.  So for now it will happily hang on a door inside.  Here are more pictures.

Hope you like it!
