New Door Wreath

I bought this grape vine wreath at Hobby Lobby about 2 months ago...I put some flowers on it but I didn't "love" it...it's been hanging on my door...Last night I decided to get out the spray paint!! I painted it white...


In my kitchen...the light's not that great...i painted it white

The flowers I used were bought at Dollar Tree....For some reason when i saw them the yellow just popped out at me...i just cut them off at the stem....they were originally long stemmed...i bunched them up and wrapped sisal twine around them....i hot glued the end to stay...i took the whole bunch and hot glued it onto the wreath....i had a letter "L" that i had also purchased at Hobby Lobby to use on another project that my husband hated...i had spray painted it blue from the flower pot project i did a while back...i also hot glued it onto the wreath...it just seemed to be missing something...i took some of the sisal twine and made some small flowers out of it....see below:




i made 3 of the flowers...i hot glued them onto the wreath and still something seemed to be missing....i rummaged through some of my old crafting stuff and found some little blingy jewels...i put them in the center to complete it...

hanging on door...

i'm happy with it for now...since i'm usually a copy cat, i just wanted to say that i came up with this on my own!! HAHA...just a creative streak in me today...i will probably change it up later....

EDIT 1: All of my stuff fell off! guess it was too hot on my door...got to try something different...

EDIT 2:  I used some Gorilla glue this time and it didn't fall off...has been several days!! YAY!
