{Wreath Makeover}

This wreath cost me a total of 3.47! 
(The cost of one can of Emerald Green spraypaint). 

 The wreath itself was given to me for...wait for it, wait for it, free.  I don't turn anything down that is free. ever.   My sweet friend was moving and didn't want to take it with her so I snatched it.  It once had vibrant green leaves with red berries adorning it, but that day had long passed.   

It waited patiently hanging on my wall for about 3 years for it's makeover.  Poor little dusty wreath. 

With Christmas right around the corner I thought I'd go for a Christmasy look.  I just spray painted it Emerald Green. That turned out pretty bright so I grabbed a can of ORB off my shelf and lightly sprayed over the top to tone it down.  Then I added some Christmas picks that I already had and stuck them in.  Easy Peesy.

 I love Christmas and I love cheap!  I am so inspired by all you bloggers out there who are so very talented at making things beautiful on a budget!  I just try to keep up with ya'll!
