Loving my knockoff

Theirs
Mine
I couldn't even think of paying $50 for a feather wreath so I made my own out of 2 black feather boas and a floral metal frame.  With this coupon from Michael's I spent a total of $13.20.  Oh and I don't think Chris is going to let me paint the front door orange.

I LOVE IT!!!!!!! So thrifty and creative! When Chris buys you a house you will definitely have to paint your door orange with your black feather wreath.

Be the change..... said...

I don't think the condo association would approve either ;-) Maybe orange wrapping paper? lol

That is very creative Loda. Great job. I haven't had a chance to do the fresh floral dye project(too impatient). Instead, I'm cheating with fake flowers that I'm simply going to spray some orange and some black. I'm going to glue them to oriental plane(sp?)tree branches that will also be sprayed but with a flat tombstone gray. I'm also going to do 1 or 2 fresh floral centerpieces in a fresh pumpkin. Eddie Ross's blog inspired me with that thought. Well, have a great weekend.
