Craftin' Away {$95 wreath for >$10! }

Last night, I found a wreath on Etsy that I loved. However, it was $95. But it was made out of paper, and I knew it was something I could make myself.

So this morning, I made a quick run to Hobby Lobby to buy the styrofoam wreath base and music note paper. I already had the buttons and Christmas paper and raffia. I love the way it turned out. It turned out to be less than a $10 project!  (fyi - husbands are happy when you can get in and out of Hobby Lobby in $10 or less!  I don't think it's ever happened before! haha)

I just hung it above our bed, and I think it looks great with these two Christmas printables that I downloaded, printed, and framed this afternoon.

After I hung everything up together,  Kurt said that it looks like something we could keep up year 'round. Obviously since the prints are Christmas specific, I'll be switching them out... but that means the project was a success, right?
