Dollar Store Wreaths!

Hello ladies. Welcome to the mansion this fine Sunday. A few days ago I posted some wreaths and asked which you all like the best. (Check that out here.) You all chose the bell wreath. It was indeed gorgeous. See?
Well...I decided to try the bell wreath. I trotted myself down to the dollar store and loaded up on some wreath items.... I got some floral wire, a roll of gold ribbon, and 4 boxes of bells. My friend Judi ( Hi Judi!) also gave me some silver bells she had leftover from a project. I used the items to make two wreaths. So...that averages out ot 3 bucks per bell wreath.

I made a circle out of the floral wire and started loading the bells on the wire. I put one big bell and then five small bells and repeated this until I was done. Then I had a solid circle of bells. Next I tied a big gold bow and attached it to the wreath. At first, I hung the wreaths from the door knobs like "Martha." But, upon further thinking I decided that my kiddos would be too tempted to yank them off...over and over again. So, I attached them to the tops of the doors...

I really like the way they turned out. The gold and silver go well with our Christmas decor theme this year.
Thanks for stopping by the mansion to take a peek. I will be posting more wreaths and holiday decor in the days ahead. Have a great week.
