This time I was very lucky indeed. My bag was crammed with several pairs of summer flip flops (which I can use in future beach themed birthday gifts for children) some silk flowers (to add to my crafting stash) and a bunch of wooden items. The wooden items included four intricate laser cut wooden frames and eight 18 inch wooden letters. I am thrilled with the frames and can hardly wait to put them to use on a later project. Out of the letters I took two "B"s (my surname starting with a B and all..) and gave the rest to my friend who said her son would enjoy them.
What to do with two wooden B's.... what to do indeed.... and so they sat for several weeks. Now as the season is changing and I start getting exciting about autumn it occurred to me that I could use the "B"s as a sort of wreath for our front door. I thought I would make one an autumn wreath and one a Christmas wreath. I have, as of yet, only completed the autumn wreath.
Since I bought the entire grab bag of items for $2 and this wreath uses only one of those items I am counting the B as a no cost item.
That Guy bought silk leaves and a decorative holiday spray from the dollar store for $1 each, totaling $2.
The spray paint, hot glue, and small length of burlap were all on hand items.
To begin That Guy offered to take the B outside and spray paint it for me. Isn't he sweet? He couldn't decide if he wanted to paint it brown or green...

|This project is so quick!|
